Research interests

I am working on solving QCD (Quantum Chromodynamics) via numerical simulations of lattice QCD. QCD is a well defined theory, but it is extremely difficult to solve. One set of the fundamental building blocks of matter are called quarks. We would like to study the masses and decay properties of quarks to find evidence for some more profound theory of particle physics than we have now. Unfortunately the quarks interact with each other and other particles via QCD. To study quarks, we need to tame QCD.

My research interests in nuclear/hadronic physics

QCD contains both quarks and gluons. Quarks and gluons combine to form bound states called meson and baryons. In principle the gluons can produce novel bound states, such as glueballs or hybrid mesons. However, currently, there is no conclusive evidence for QCD bound states where the gluons play a dynamical role. Perhaps, this is because QCD is difficult to solve.

The goals of my research in this area are:
  • The determination of the masses of light J^PC = 0++ and 2++ flavour singlet mesons, because glueball degrees of freedom may be hidden in these states (Recent papers, 2010 , 2006 , 2000 and a review) .
  • One of my medium term goals is to determine the mass spectrum of exotic mesons in the charmonium system.
  • Validation of lattice QCD techniques against basic light meson spectroscopy, such as the masses of the a0 and b1 mesons. To understand novel bound states, we must also understand standard hadrons.
  • Application of techniques to deal with resonances using lattice QCD.
There are new experimental facilities such as the 12 GeV upgrade of the Jefferson lab, and the PANDA experiment at GSI, whose main goal is to search for the effects of non-perturbative gluons. These experiments will start taking data after 2015. The BES experiment in China is already taking data and plans to look for glueball degrees of freedom.

Conferences organised

I was on the local organizing committee for the international 2005 conference in Dublin. I was one of the three editors of the proceedings for lattice 2005 conference. I organised a two day international workshop at Glasgow in April 2008 with the title: "The nuclear physics challenge to lattice QCD" (http://nuclear.gla.ac.uk/nuclat/). In 2016 I was on the organising committee for the Extreme QCD conference held in Plymouth (http://xqcd2016.math-sciences.org/).
