Simons Foundation Announces New Collaboration on Confinement and QCD Strings

The Simons Foundation has announced a new research collaboration to explore the “glue” that holds the visible matter of the universe together. This team will delve into the details of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) — the theory that describes the interactions among the most fundamental building blocks of visible matter.

Supercomputers Aid Scientists Studying the Smallest Particles in the Universe

Using the nation’s fastest supercomputer, Summit at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a team of nuclear physicists developed a promising method for measuring quark interactions in hadrons and applied the method to simulations using quarks with close-to-physical masses.
