Physics and Astronomy Colloquium, "QCD is Everywhere" Dr. Andreas Kronfeld, Fermilab
This event is in the past.
Quantum chromodynamics (QCD) is the modern theory of the strong nuclear force and part of the Standard Model of elementary particles. QCD is a beautiful theoretical construct that has required considerable human ingenuity to understand in detail. The beauty, ingenuity, and peculiarities can be understood via examples from particle physics and nuclear physics, of course, but also from everyday life.
