Speaker: Gökçe Basar, Assistant Professor of Physics, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
"The Search for the QCD Critical Point" The strong force binds the building blocks of protons and neutrons, quarks and gluons, together and creates most of the observed mass in the universe. At a few trillion degrees, these bonds break, and matter transitions into a new phase called Quark Gluon... Read More »

Speaker: Harald W. Griesshammer
Compton scattering probes the symmetries and strengths of nucleonic and nuclear interactions and provides a bridge between data and lattice-QCD computations of fundamental hadron properties. The polarizabilities of the nucleon parametrize its stiffness against deformations in electric and magnetic... Read More »

Speaker: Jianfeng Lu (Duke University)
Numerical simulations for open quantum system dynamics is a profound challenge. In this talk, we will present some recent works on diagrammatic algorithms for open quantum systems. The focus will be an interplay between the dynamical sign problem and error amplification in numerical integration. In... Read More »
