Following the joint gravitational wave and electromagnetic observations of the single binary neutron star merger GW170817, there is now strong evidence that neutron rich ejecta from neutron star mergers produces r- process elements. However, it is still not known if neutron star mergers are the dominant source of r-process elements in our galaxy.

Over the last decade there has been significant development in machine learning and artificial intelligence, with supervised and unsupervised computational learning tools now used routinely in scientific applications. Building on this progress, the focus of this program is on the use and future impacts of machine learning in nuclear theory, bringing together researchers with focuses in lattice QCD and statistical systems, hadron and nuclear structure, many-body theory, quantum computing, nuclear astrophysics, and hot and dense matter, to explore common interests in machine learning tools and applications.

In the next decade, an impressive experimental program will test the limits of the Standard Model (SM) and address the most pressing open questions in particle physics, from the nature of dark matter to the origin of neutrino masses, from the dominance of matter over anti-matter in the universe to the absence of strong CP violation and the large hierarchy between the electroweak and the Planck scale.
Workshop
-
  • Susan Gardner
  • Wick Haxton
  • Barry Holstein
The workshop will focus on the current status of the data and their theoretical interpretation. An important goal of the workshop is to create a community roadmap for future experimental and theoretical work that will not only determine the Danilov amplitudes but also extract from them a deeper understanding of the interplay of the strong and weak interactions at low energies, thus providing a perspective on new experimental directions as well.

The workshop addressed questions related to hadronization and its multiple manifestations in high-energy scattering processes. Hadronization is intrinsically connected to fundamental properties of QCD, such as confinement and the dynamical breaking of the chiral symmetry. Moreover, it plays an important role in the context of hadron and nuclear structure studies. In particular, a detailed understanding of hadronization is vital for the optimal preparation of the next generation of experiments, such as the Electron-Ion Collider.

In recent years, jet physics in HIC has become an active field of study largely driven by the unprecedented experimental capabilities of the RHIC and LHC accelerator and detectors. In this context, jet substructure has emerged as a promising multi-dimensional tool to explore QCD dynamics and has already proved to be very useful in the context of heavy ion collisions.

Tensor network methods are rapidly developing and evolving in many areas of quantum physics. They offer new ways of computing the properties of strongly interacting quantum matter. They provide new perspectives on theories with sign problems and/or significant entanglement. Tensor network ideas are also closely related to emerging efforts to design algorithms suitable for current and future quantum computing hardware or quantum simulation experiments. This program will bring together experts from a range of scientific fields with a common interest in these new methods.

A sound theoretical description of nuclear forces is pivotal for understanding many important physical observables over a wide range of energy scales and densities, from few-body physics to nuclear-structure observables to astrophysical phenomena. A systematic and precise theory for nuclear Hamiltonians is crucial to providing accurate predictions for these systems with controlled theoretical uncertainties, and to enable meaningful comparisons of theoretical calculations with experimental data and astrophysical observations.

This program aims to bring together the accumulated knowledge of condensed matter physics, particle physics and nuclear physics to facilitate a re-examination of the QCD phase diagram using tools that go beyond the Landau paradigm, and explore further connections between nuclear matter, lattice gauge simulations, and topological Dirac and Weyl semimetals. The program will also highlight new inter-connected developments in condensed matter and QFT, including fractons and their field theory descriptions, higher form symmetries, and symmetry protected topological (SPT) phases involving onsite and spatial symmetries.
