Bound states and resonances in Effective Field Theories and Lattice QCD calculations

2014, Jul 20 -- Aug 01

This meeting aims to bring together physicists with diverse expertise interested in the application of low-energy QCD to nuclear and hadronic physics, in order to boost progress in the field. The focus will be on lattice and effective theory techniques, but other techniques, including large-Nc, unitarization and dispersive approaches will also be discussed. We plan to have approximately three talks per day, leaving plenty of time for discussions and collaborations. Poster sessions and discussion sessions will also be organized. The first week (21-25/07) will be devoted to resonances and very light systems, with a particular focus on the application of lattice-QCD to these systems. The second week (28-31/07) will shift the emphasis to QCD-based treatments of somewhat larger nuclei. A list of selected topics and confirmed key participants follows:


- Resonances on and off the lattice
- Few-hadron bound states in Lattice QCD. Volume, continuum and quark mass extrapolations
- Isospin violation and electromagnetism in the lattice
- Nucleon-Nucleon Interaction
- Parity and time reversal Violation
- Electromagnetic and weak reactions in few-body systems
- Three nucleon forces
- Halo nuclei
