2nd International Workshop on
Quarks and Hadrons under Extreme Conditions
- Lattice QCD, Holography, Topology, and Physics at RHIC/LHC -

Nov. 17 (Thu.) - 18 (Fri.), 2011
Raiosha 2F, Hiyoshi campus, Keio University

Aim of the workshop

It is of increasing importance to probe the non-perturbative properties of a quark-gluon plasma (QGP) theoretically and experimentally. There are many insights and indications provided by the experimental data from RHIC and more abundant data are already being reported from the heavy-ion collision experiment at LHC.

Theoretically, approaches based on AdS/CFT (and holographic QCD models) and lattice QCD are found to be powerful tools to study the spectral properties of quarks and hadrons under extreme conditions. In addition, phenomena induced by topological effects (quantum anomaly, dynamics of vortices, etc) are under active debates, which also sheds light on non-perturbative aspects of gauge theory.

From the point of view of theoretical approaches to strongly correlated matter, the implication from analogous systems in condensed matter physics such as ultra cold atoms is of use to investigate the QGP properties non-perturbatively.

The aims of this workshop are to summarize the current status of these theoretical approaches and to explore new directions toward the understanding of strongly interacting quarks and gluons at high energy density.
