Supercomputing the Origin of Mass

In this video, Professor Derek Leinweber from the University of Adelaide presents his research in Lattice Quantum Field Theory; revealing the origin of mass in the universe. “While the fundamental interactions are well understood, elucidating the complex phenomena emerging from this quantum field theory is fascinating and often surprising. My explorations of QCD-vacuum structure featured in Professor Wilczek’s 2004 Physics Nobel Prize Lecture. Our approach to discovering the properties of this key component of the Standard Model of the Universe favors fundamental first-principles numerical simulations of QCD on supercomputers. This field of study is commonly referred to as Lattice QCD.”
