Non-perturbative field theory: Progress in lattice field theory

  • P. Hernández
PLT - Plenary Talks


A very significant progress has been achieved in lattice field theory in recent years. This has been possible thanks to the spectacular increase in the computer speed, but most importantly by the development of new algorithms, the use of improved actions and the ingenuity of the questions being asked. I will illustrate the recent progress in the field by considering a few selected examples of these.
