Exposing the hidden glue of the mundane world
This event is in the past.
Gluons in the low-energy strong-interaction world dominate everything, but there is no hard evidence. The potentially-detectable glues are confined to a small region of space of order one fermi, and are completely blind to electromagnetism and weak interactions. However, they contribute significantly to the momentum, mass, spin, and other properties of the protons and neutrons---the dominant matter component in our visible universe. In this talk, I will discuss how to expose them through special processes in electron scattering on nucleons and nuclei at JLab and future EIC. I will also describe theoretical efforts to compute their effects through large-scale lattice QCD simulations.
