SUURI-COOL (Kyushu) Lecture
July 31 (Wed) - August 2 (Fri), 2019
Takumi Doi (Senior Research Scientist, iTHEMS / Senior Research Scientist, Quantum Hadron Physics Laboratory, RIKEN Nishina Center for Accelerator-Based Science (RNC))
SUURI-COOL (Kyushu) at the Ito-campus of Kyushu Univ. will be launched on July 31, 2019. As a first event at SUURI-COOL (Kyushu), the following lecture by Takumi Doi (RIKEN Nishina Center/iTHEMS) will be held. Feel free to join if you will be around Ito-campus. Nuclei, many-body systems of baryons as protons and neutrons, are ultimately consist of elementary particles of quarks and gluons and their properties are governed by quantum chromodynamics (QCD). Recently, a new theoretical method is developing in lattice QCD, the first-principles calculation of QCD, and the new era is dawning where nuclear physics is constructed directly based on QCD. In this lecture, I first introduce the formulation of lattice QCD. I will then discuss the theoretical foundation and the latest numerical results about the lattice QCD study of hadron interactions, the key quantities to construct nuclear physics from QCD. I will also give a lecture on computational science, in particular, about supercomputers.
