# Quantum Fields on Lattice

## A BOLYAI DOCTORAL COURSE

16-19th October 2006

Lecture Series by Prof. Zoltán Fodor (Budapest, Wuppertal) followed by a One Day Topical Workshop

Organized jointly by Particle Physics Program of Eötvös Doctoral School in Physics and Bolyai College of Eötvös University

## Overview of the subjects to be covered in the lecture series

- Path integral formulation of quantum field theories, perturbative and non-perturbative approaches
- Lattice regularization, the continuum limit
- Scalar fields on lattice (renormalization, triviality, upper bound on the Higgs-mass)
- Gauge theories on lattice (Wilson-action, improvement programs)
- Fermions on lattice
- Hadron spectroscopy (the role of the quenched approximation, unquenched results)
- Thermodynamical transitions of quantum field theories (equation of state, finite size scaling)
- Ground state of QCD with non-zero baryonic charge density

The Course and Workshop will be held in Bolyai College (H-1117, Budapest, Nándorfejérvári út 13). Information on the location can be found on the english pages of the web site of Bolyai College.
