Lattice Nuclei Nuclear physics and QCD - Bridging the gap
The strong interaction between nucleons results from quantum chromodynamics (QCD). With the ability to solve QCD on the lattice for the lightest nuclei, it will be possible to derive the nuclear systematics from few fundamental constants. To this end, effective field theories (EFT) provide a systematic framework. They connect the interaction between quarks and gluons to the appropriate force amongst neutrons and protons. With the latter, nuclear properties can be calculated using established few and many-body techniques.This workshop will provide an exchange platform for experts from all the three fields, lattice QCD, EFT, andfew-/many-body physics aiming to accelerate the bridging between particle and nuclear theories.
