Local quantum field theory (LQFT) is an axiomatic formulation of QFT which provides a powerful framework from which non-perturbative questions can be addressed. I will outline some of the applications of this approach, including shedding new light on the spin structure of hadrons and the nature of confinement in QCD.
The Particle Physics Theory seminar is a weekly series of talks reflecting the diverse interests of the group. Topics include analytic and numerical calculations based on the Standard Model of elementary particle physics, theories exploring new physics, as well as more formal developments in gauge theories and gravity..
