Fermions on Simplicial Lattices and their Dual Lattices

  • Event time: 1:00pm
  • Event date: 4th August 2017
  • Speaker: Alan Horowitz (University of Pittsburgh)
  • Location: Higgs Centre Seminar Room,

Event details

I will show that naive and staggered fermions on simplicial lattices and their dual lattices in any dimension can be formulated almost as simply as on hypercubic lattices.  Point and chiral symmetry properties are a little more delicate.  There is a chance that simulations on these alternative lattices have some advantages.

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..
