Research visitor to CMS

Mathematical Sciences at Plymouth will be hosting the CERN senior research fellow Maxwell Hansen next week, collaborating with Antonio Rago and Argia Rubeo.

He will also be presenting a seminar in the theoretical physics seminar:

Title: Multi-hadron observables from lattice QCD


The strong force is governed by a mathematical framework called quantum
chromodynamics (QCD). The building blocks of QCD are quarks and gluons,
and the interactions of these constituents leads to a rich variety of
observed phenomena. A particularly intriguing aspect of QCD physics is
the nature and behavior of resonances, short-lived states that decay via
the strong force. In this talk I will discuss progress in studying these
states, by calculating multi-hadron scattering observables. This by
achieved by combining field-theoretic ideas with large scale numerical
calculations based in lattice QCD. In particular, I will focus on the
idea of using the finite volume required for numerical calculations as a
tool, rather than an unwanted artifact, to extract dynamical observables
such as two- and three-hadron scattering amplitudes.

China Visit – Mathematics and Statistics

The following article was included in a newsletter for the faculty of science and engineering.

Dr Yinghui Wei recently visited China for student recruitment. She attended the University of Plymouth’s graduation ceremony in Beijing where she provided translating support and presented the graduates.  After this, she visited six universities where she gave outreach talks to promote the University of Plymouth and its mathematics and statistics programmes, as well as research presentations to staff and students. She met with key academics and international officers in Chinese universities, to discuss recruiting Chinese students to study mathematics and statistics as well as other disciplines in Plymouth.
