Many (Weakly Coupled) Hadrons in a Box: Leona Woods Prize talk

by Dorota Grabowska (UW/INT)




Lattice methods provide the only known tool to calculate, from first principles and with quantifiable errors, properties of nuclear systems. In particular, the Luscher quantisation condition, as well as its generalisations,  allow for the extraction of infinite volume scattering information from finite volume energy shifts. Unfortunately, while the quantisation condition itself can be written in a fairly compact way, applying it to real-world simulations is a different matter. In this talk, I will present new tools and methods which aim to maximise the amount of information that can be gleaned from the simulations of weakly interacting few body systems.
