Lattice Quantum ChromoDynamics

Clusters at

Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory


Fermilab operates large clusters of computers for lattice quantum chromodynamics, as part of the national computational infrastructure for lattice QCD established by the Department of Energy.


Their goal is the understanding of the strong dynamics of quarks and gluons, which is beyond the reach of the traditional perturbative methods of quantum field theory.
