Topology in dynamical Lattice QCD simulations

Lattice simulations of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), the quantum field theory which describes the interaction between quarks and gluons, have reached a point were contact to experimental data can be

Chiral symmetry and lattice QCD

Abstract. Four lectures about chiral symmetry and dynamical fermions in QCD. 1) Chiral symmetry in continuum QCD with an eye toward lattice simulations. 2) Lattice fermions with exact chiral

Lattice QCD with dynamical quarks

An overview is given of lattice QCD with dynamical quarks taking study the QCDSF collaboration results for two and three flavours of dynamical quarks for hadronic stucture. We first sketch the

Confinement, chiral symmetry, and the lattice

Two crucial properties of QCD, confinement and chiral symmetry breaking, cannot be understood within the context of conventional Feynman perturbation theory. Non-perturbative phenomena enter the

Path Integrals in Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics

Physics Department, George Washington University, Washington, DC 20052, USAI discuss the use of path integrals to study strong-interaction physics from firstprinciples. The underlying theory is cast

Meson-nucleon scattering amplitudes from lattice QCD

Lattice QCD calculations of resonant meson-meson scattering amplitudes have improved significantly due to algorithmic and computational advances. However, progress in meson-nucleon scattering has

Light Hadron Masses from Lattice QCD

This article reviews lattice QCD results for the light hadron spectrum. An overview of different formulations of lattice QCD with discussions on the fermion doubling problem and improvement programs

Pion physics at finite volume

We use chiral perturbation theory coupled to electromagnetism in a periodic box to study the impact of volume corrections on pion physics in lattice QCD. We demonstrate that conserved currents can be

Ultracold quantum gases and lattice systems: quantum simulation of lattice gauge theories

Abelian and non‐Abelian gauge theories are of central importance in many areas of physics. In condensed matter physics, Abelian U(1) lattice gauge theories arise in the description of certain quantum
