Recent Activity at INT:

Advances in Monte Carlo Techniques for Many-Body Quantum Systems (INT-18-2b)
(INT Program July 30 - September 7, 2018)

Reported by B.K. Clark, S. Gandolfi, F. Pederiva, M.J. Savage
Reported on October 15, 2018
Application of Monte Carlo methods to the solution of interesting problems in physics, and particularly
in Quantum Theory, has a long history. The potential capability of exactly solving for eigenstates of a given Hamiltonian collides with some well-known fundamental obstacles, such as the fermion sign problem which is caused by an exponentially decaying signal to noise ratio in the simulation.

Multi-Scale Problems Using Effective Field Theories (INT-18-1b)
(INT Program May 7 - June 1, 2018)

Reported by E. Braaten, N. Brambilla, T. Schäfer, A. Vairo
Reported on June 19, 2018
Many contemporary open problems at the frontiers of nuclear and particle physics are characterized by the existence of a separation of scales that can be exploited using effective field theories (EFTs). The EFT method treats the low energy degrees of freedom as dynamical fields, and takes into account higher-energy scales systematically through matching conditions. Read more...
