Project Description

The calculations geared to high-energy physics are well aligned with the US strategic plan, spelled out in the report of the Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel. Likewise, those geared to nuclear physics are also well aligned with the US strategic plan, spelled out the long-range plan of the Nuclear Science Advisory Committee. Kronfeld’s team will perform work of interest to both fields. For example, nucleon form factors pertain to neutrino- scillation experiments at Fermilab and to electron-proton scattering experiments at Jefferson Laboratory. A forward-looking program of calculations of parton distribution functions are relevant to the Large Hadron Collider at CERN and to the planned Electron-Ion Collider. In the area of flavor physics, the team aims for subpercent precision on many quantities, and in the area of hot-dense quantum chromodynamics, it aims to elucidate experimental results from the Beam Energy Scan at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider.
