lattice QCD

From Exascale Computing Project, May 28, 2019: Fermilab scientist Andreas Kronfeld is featured in this piece on the Excascale Computing Project, quantum chromodynamics and lattice QCD. Kronfeld, the principal investigator of ECP’s LatticeQCD project, explains how exascale computing will be essential to extending the work of precision calculations in particle physics to nuclear physics. The calculations are central for interpreting all experiments in particle physics and nuclear physics.

Physicists and computer scientists at the Department of Energy’s Fermilab can stake a larger claim on the future of high-energy physics-and on the next generation of computing-thanks to their part in the first-ever awards in DOE’s Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing Program (SciDAC), announced today (August 14) in Washington, D.C. by Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham.
