CSSM Summer School

*Non-perturbative Methods in Quantum Field Theory*

11th - 15th February 2013

Understanding the full ramifications of QCD will only be achieved using non-perturbative methods in quantum field theory and this summer school aims to give an overview of current state of the art techniques used to tackle the hardest known problems in nature. For example, Lattice QCD, Dyson-Schwinger Equations and QCD inspired models will be discussed.

A detailed understanding of QCD and the strong nuclear force will only occur via the continued interplay between theory and experiment. Therefore this summer school will highlight several important experimental discoveries of the last few decades that have altered our understanding of hadronic and nuclear structure. For example, the important interplay between experiment and theory will be explored via obserables such as: electromagetic form factors, parton distribution/fragmentation functions, hadronic resonances, nuclear structure and neutron stars.

The summer school lectures will be aimed at PhD students and should give a good overview of contemporary topics in strong interaction physics. Beginning CSSM/COEPP honours students are also strongly encouraged to attend.

**Note:** At 4:30pm on Monday there will be a reception in the CSSM/COEPP
common room (in the annex), all CSSM/COEPP students and staff are
welcome to attend.
