Particle Physics Seminar

Date: Wednesday 20th October 2004

Title: Lattice approach to the QCD Phase Diagram

Speaker: Prof Simon Hands (Swansea)


Prof Hands will review recent results on the QCD phase diagram in the temperature (T) - baryon chemical plane (mu) using Monte Carlo simulations of both Lattice QCD and related effective theories. In particular, he will review recent progress at high T and low mu in the regime relevant for heavy-ion collisions, and attempts to model the low T high mu regime pertinant to the physics of compact stars.

This Particle Physics Seminar will take place in Seminar Room 2 (room 106), Physics West, at 1315. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served at 1300.
