How stabile is the universe? More than 500 physicists are expected to ponder that question at the 31st International Symposium on Lattice Field Theory to be held in Mainz from next week. Sponsored by Nvidia and Megware, the annual symposium brings together a global community of researchers who employ numerical and computational methods to study the properties of strongly interacting physical systems such as Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), the theory describing the interactions of quarks and gluons.

In addition to the latest findings relating to the properties of hadrons, at the Lattice 2013 symposium we will also be looking at the simulations used to investigate the recently discovered Higgs boson and the consequences regarding the stability of our universe,” announced Professor Hartmut Wittig of the symposium’s organization team.
