From Quarks and Gluons to Nuclear Forces and Structure
Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics (LQCD), chiral effective field theory (χEFT) and nuclear lattice effective field theory (NLEFT) have in recent years achieved great progress. These advances provide new possibilities to explore and study fundamental questions in strongly interacting systems relevant for nuclear physics, with the goal of fully controlling all uncertainties. Students attending the 2019 TALENT summer school "From Quarks and Gluons to Nuclear Forces and Structure" will be trained in state-of-the-art methods and concepts in first principles nuclear theory such as LQCD, χEFT and NLEFT. The purpose is to prepare the next generation of nuclear theorists on how to determine physical properties of multi-hadron systems from the fundamental theory of the strong interactions.
