Nuclear Lattice Effective Field Theory

By Christopher Körber

Seminar at IKP

Keywords: Lattice Physics, Nuclear Physics, Quantum Monte-Carlo Algorithms


Nuclear Lattice Effective Field Theory (NLEFT) has proven to be a valuable candidate for pushing the borders of nuclear physics in the regime of nuclei as Carbon-12 and has enabled the computation of nuclear matrix elements for larger systems. The applicability of NLEFT to such systems is enabled through the utilization of lattice stochastic approaches as Hybrid Monte Carlo (HMC) algorithms. In this seminar, I briefly present the underlying principles and strategy behind modern algorithms.
