Computational High Energy Physics

item Introduction

Attention: Imperial physicist's ground breaking work in 1960s recognised by journal, Nobelist Steven Weinberg Praises Professor Gerald Guralnik and Collaborators for Higgs Boson Theory and Profs. try to solve mysteries of universe; for more on this, read A Physics History of My part in the Theory of Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking and Gauge particles with a mix of modern ideas (PDF, 194Kb).

Welcome to the Computational High Energy Physics (CHEP) group page. We pursue alternative, complementary approaches to numerical quantum field theory to those methods based on Monte Carlo approximations of the functional Feynman Path Integral.

Presently, our work is primarily focused on 2 novel numerical methods and 1 analytical line of research:

On this page, we provide descriptions and pointers of recent publications, to member home pages, and to group facilities. Further information about the CHEP group can be obtained by sending inquiries to chep-info [at] het [dot] brown [dot] edu.

item Publications & Talks

item Facilities

CHEP is a major participant in the Theoretical Physics Computing Facility at Brown University, directing funds from the Department of Energy towards the purchase of two Cray medium-scale supercomputer platforms, as well as a collection of workstations (Intel, AMD, Sun) for code development and data analysis.

For production work, the group uses the remote large-scale supercomputing facilities at NERSC. We are beginning investigations into massively parallel algorithms, as applied to our large sets of nonlinear equations.

item Help and Manuals

If you are a begginer [a newbie, a tidbit], HET Help is for you! ;-)
