Baryon-baryon interactions and the H dibaryon from lattice QCD

  • Event time: 2:00pm until 3:00pm
  • Event date: 2nd March 2022
  • Speaker: Jeremy Green (Trinity College Dublin)
  • Location: Higgs Centre Seminar Room, Room 4305,

Event details

Using lattice QCD, one can study hadrons and their interactions starting
from quantum chromodynamics. In the baryon-baryon sector, this offers
the prospect of a first-principles basis for nuclear physics. I will
discuss the methodology and challenges of these calculations and present
a study of the conjectured H dibaryon, a bound state of hyperons with
quark content uuddss, at a single SU(3)-flavour-symmetric quark mass
point. For the first time, an extrapolation to zero lattice spacing was
performed, which had an unexpectedly large effect on the binding energy.
I will also review the status of calculations in the nucleon-nucleon sector.
