# Novel applications of Lattice QCD: Parton Distributions, proton charge radius and neutron electric dipole moment

@inproceedings{Alexandrou2016NovelAO, title={Novel applications of Lattice QCD: Parton Distributions, proton charge radius and neutron electric dipole moment}, author={Constantia Alexandrou}, year={2016} }

We briefly discuss the current status of lattice QCD simulations and review selective results on nucleon observables focusing on recent developments in the lattice QCD evaluation of the nucleon form factors and radii, parton distribution functions and their moments, and the neutron electric dipole moment. Nucleon charges and moments of parton distribution functions are presented using simulations generated at physical values of the quark masses, while exploratory studies are performed for the…
