QCDlat focuses on the theoretical and algorithmic development of advanced simulation methods for complex systems. The main goal is to make accurate studies of the dynamics of the strong interaction starting from the first principles through MonteCarlo simulations on lattices.
The proposed physical result is to make possible precision comparisons between the theory of the Standard Model and the experimental data relating to the collisions between elementary particles and also to the plasma of quarks and gluons.
In Ferrara this line of research is applied to a variety of complex systems, ranging from "frozen" systems, such as spin lattices, to the study of turbulence in ordinary fluids, up to the more "exotic" systems of recent development. , such as graphene sheets.
