International Workshop in BLTP

News, 03 September 2018

On 4 – 6 September 2018, the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) will hold the II International Workshop on “Lattice and Functional Techniques for Exploration of Phase Structure and Transport Properties in Quantum Chromodynamics”.

Inspired by the activities going on in Dubna for the construction of NICA and the preparations of experimentalists for the BM@N and MPD experiments, the Bogoliubov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics of JINR realizes the project “Theory of Hadronic Matter under Extreme Conditions”. This Workshop is the second meeting specifically devoted to the functional and lattice QCD methods in the series of workshops and seminars in support of the project “Theory of Hadronic Matter under Extreme Conditions”. It aims at bringing together practioners of QCD lattice thermodynamics with specialists developing functional continuum approaches and to chart promising areas of collaboration or to continue already ongoing collaboration, mainly with the aim to extend the abilities of functional QFT methods and lattice QCD simulations.

Topics of the Workshop:

  • from zero to finite baryonic density,
  • from Euclidean to Minkowski time,
  • from zero to nonvanishing external fields,
  • temperature dependence of topology and topological susceptibility,
  • modelling phase transitions in finite strongly interacting systems.
