Title Exploring the heart of matter at Jefferson Lab

Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility in Newport News, Virginia, is a U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science national laboratory. Jefferson Lab’s unique and exciting mission is to expand humankind’s knowledge of the universe by studying the fundamental building blocks of matter within the nucleus: subatomic particles known as quarks and gluons. In my seminar, I will present our science program to understand the structure of atomic nuclei directly from the dynamics of their quarks and gluons, governed by the theory of their interactions, quantum chromodynamics (QCD), and motivate how advances in theory, accelerator and detector technologies, and in particular in computer science will enable a new frontier in nuclear science.
