Chandrasekharan and Li attend Lattice Field Theory Symposium

Tuesday, August 2, 2011

In July Prof. Shailesh Chandrasekharan and postdoctoral associate Dr. Anyi Li traveled to Squaw Valley, Lake Tahoe to attend the 2011 International Symposium on Lattice Field Theory. It is the biggest annual meeting for all the people who are doing lattice field theory calculations. 350 participants from all over the world have attended this year's conference. Prof. Chandrasekharan and Dr. Li presented their work on the novel developed algorithm which can efficiently simulate the fermionic system at chiral limit. It is believed that the conventional approach would fail at that limit. Their approach has been well received by the audiences and raised lots of interesting questions and discussions. The new algorithm has promising applications on the physics of graphene and unitary fermi gas. They have started implementing the calculations on those problems. See more photos on Flickr here.
