QCD presents a fundamental problem that is unique
in the history of
science. Never before have we been confronted by a theory whose
elementary excitations are not those degreesoffreedom readily
accessible via experiment; i.e., whose elementary excitations are
confined. Moreover, there are reasons to believe that QCD
generates forces which are so strong that less than 2% of a nucleon’s
mass can be attributed to the currentquark masses; viz., a phenomenon
known as dynamical chiral symmetry breaking.
There
has been progress in mathematics,
which began roughly fifteen years ago with a realisation that the
process of renormalisation is naturally ex pressed via Hopf algebra
structures.
The purpose of the workshop MAHP2012
is to bring together experts in: the Hopf
algebra structure of DysonSchwinger equations (DSEs) and
renormalisation; perturbative QCD; and the application of DSEs to
phenomena in hadronuclear and particle physics.
Our immediate goal is to open
a dialogue between mathematicians and
physicists, so that each can come to appreciate the challenges
and needs of the other.
