Self-introduction: Liang Zhang
I’m a Ph.D. student form Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics (SINAP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). And I came to iTHEMS on January 26th, 2023. When I was a undergraduate learning nuclear physics, I’m curious about how we can calculate the interactions between nucleons. I think it is the key for us to understand nucleus better. Beside this, I also learnt that there are hypernucleuses, where several nucleons are replaced by other baryons. So, if the interactions can be calculated from quark model and QCD theory, it allows us to study not only the normal nucleuses but also hypernucleuses which may exist at the beginning of the universe. HAL QCD is a great way to study the interactions between baryons by using lattice QCD calculation. I’m so glad to have this chance to study HAL QCD in iTHEMS. I hope I can receive knowledge and friendship here.
