Comparison of Chemistry & QCD : K. Wilson (1989 Capri): “ lattice gauge theory could also require a 10 8 increase in computer power AND spectacular algorithmic advances before useful interactions with experiment...” ab initio Chemistry 1.1930+50 = 1980 2.0.1 flops 10 Mflops 3.Gaussian Basis functions ab initio QCD 1.1980 + 50 = 2030?* 2.10 Mflops 1000 Tflops 3.Clever Multi-scale Variable? * Fast Computers +Rigorous QCD Theoretical AnalysisSmart Algorithms + = ab inition predictions “Almost 20 Years ahead of schedule!”

Lattice QCD

8
Sources of Error Wrong “theory” --- no quark loops solution: Keep Fermionic det & Disconnected diagrams Finite lattice spacing a solution: a <.1 fermi + O(a 2 ) asymptotic freedom Light quark limit m u/d /m s O(1/20) solution: Chiral pert. theory + Exact Lattice Chiral Symmetry Finite space-time volume solution: Big memory computer Monte Carlo 1/N 1/2 sampling error solution: Algorithms + $’s

9
Staggering Results: Role of Determinant (aka Sea Quarks) This is real QCD --- No more excuses (except Staggered Fermion with Det[D] ¼ trick: 4 * ¼ taste loops. Tasteful Chiral perturbation theory to take a 0)

10
Strong Coupling Constant Lattice: S (M Z ) = 0.1170 (12) Experiment: S (M Z ) = 0.1187 (20) Lattice (data) vs Perturbation Theory (red/one sigma band)

13
Properties of and K mesons Rule out m u = 0 by 5 sigma (Strong CP problem not solved!) lattice value is |Vus| = 0.2219±0.0026,experimental results: |Vus| = 0.2262(23)

Multi-scale Algorithms String Length 1000 Mev ( » 0.2 fm) Quarks Masses: (197 fm Mev) 2, 8, 100, 1200, 4200, 175,000 Mev Nuclear: scattering length/effective range a singlet = - 23.714 fm ( » 8 Mev) & r = 2.73 a triplet = 5.425 fm ( » 36 Mev) & r = 1.749 fm Deuteron Binding = 50 Mev. (» 4 fm) Finite T, finite etc Log(m q ) Flavor: u,d,s,c,b,t QCD length scales:

Confinement length vs Pion Compton length ll m -1

18
Quark loops: Multi-time step HMC Hasenbush Trick: Rational Hybrid Monte Carlo: In Hybrid Monte Carlo (HMC) simulations, the determinant acts as a potential for molecular evolutions: Equilibrium by “molecular chaos”: Speed up by separating force terms and using multiple step sizes: n times

19
Wilson Fermions with Multi-time step trick (moving the Berlin Wall) Wilson is Almost as efficient as Staggered BUT respects flavor sym (Urbach, Jansen, Shindler, Wegner, hep-lat/0506011)

20
Multi-grid al 1980’s failure point: Universal Autocorrelation: = F(m l ) Gauss-Jacobi (Diamond), CG (circle), 3 level (square & star) = 3 (cross) 10(plus) 100( square
