The physicists who do research into lattice QCD typically need access to large supercomputers. In the UK, the supercomputer resources are in provided for by Dirac (Distributed Research Utilizing Advanced Computing). Researchers at Plymouth use resources at Edinburgh and Cambridge.
Next Thursday is Dirac day, where the majority of users of Dirac come together for a day of talks. From CMS Craig McNeile and Nicolas Garron are attending the day. Nicolas is reviewing the results obtained on Dirac by UK researchers in lattice QCD.
