Bethe Forum on Methods in lattice field theory

23.03.2015 – 02.04.2015
Lattice Field Theory Poster
Lattice field theories have become important tools to study non-perturbative phenomena in Quantum Chromodynamics and nuclear physics. In both fields, the lattice regularisation allows investigation of phenomenologically important observables from first principles. In order to further reduce systematic uncertatinties and to tackle more observables, advanced methods need to be deviced and applied. The aim of the program is to bring together world leading experts for methods in lattice field theory and trigger discussions and future developments in this research area.

Topics include:
  • Finite volume methods on the lattice
  • Scattering observables
  • Exotic bound states and resonances
  • All mode averaging and distillation
  • Analysis methods for time series of large correlator matrices
  • Algorithms for nuclear correlation functions
  • Nuclear lattice simulations

Bethe Colloquium by Prof. Andreas Ringwald

April 2015
Andreas Ringwald

April's Bethe Colloquium will take place on April 16th (3:15 pm) in Hörsaal I:

  • Andreas Ringwald (DESY)
  • The Hunt for Axions and other WISPs
  • Hörsaal I, Physikalisches Institut

Abstract: Many theoretically well-motivated extensions of the standard model of particle physics predict the existence of very weakly interacting slim (in the sense of ultralight) particles (WISPs), such as the axion. WISPs may constitute the mysterious dark matter in the universe and solve some puzzles in stellar and high-energy astrophysics. There are new, relatively small experiments around the globe, which started to hunt for these elusive particles and complement the search for physics beyond the standard model at the Large Hadron Collider.
