The Lattice group has been awarded 32M core-hours on the supercomputer Lise at the HLRN (https://www.hlrn.de/?lang=en) computing center, for the project “Towards QCD+QED simulations with C* boundary conditions at physical QED coupling”. In one year, starting from July 1st, the Lattice group will run on Lise simulations, which would take about 450 years on an … Read more Computer time for RTG Lattice project
The poster jury of the workshop Higgs as a probe of New physics (HPNP2021) selected our member Jasper Roosmale Nepveu for Best poster – Honorable Mention. We congratulate Jasper on this success!
Our paper on the efficient use of worldline qft techniques for the construction of gravitational wave forms in the scattering of two black holes, neutron stars or stars has been accepted in PRL. A great success for our double copy collaboration of Jan^2*Gustav^2!
Starting next week a variety of courses, both at the advanced and introductory level, is offered by our PIs. The full program is listed here.
