Hadronic Interactions with Lattice QCD
Univ. of Washington
With the continued deployment of computational respurces with ever increasing capability and capacity, the numerical technique of lattice Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) is moving toward becoming a practical tool with which to calculate the masses and interactions of strongly interacting particles such as protons and neutrons. Calculation of nuclear poocesses directly from QCD by numerical evaluation of the path integral promises to become a predictive tool in nuclear physics, allowing for the quantification of uncertainties in observables, such as reacion rates, and provide a reliable method to calculate processes that are inaccessible to experiment. I will review the progress that is being made toward achieving this objective.
