Theory Group

Theoretical research in Argonne's Physics Division addresses a broad range of problems involving the structure and dynamics of hadrons and nuclei. There is a strong emphasis on comparison to data provided by experimental groups at Argonne and at other facilities around the world. A brief overview of our program is available here.

In more detail, the principal areas of research include those described below:

Several of these projects require major numerical simulations using massively parallel state-of-the-art computers, including the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility's IBM Blue Gene/Q (Mira) and the Laboratory Computer Resource Center's Linux cluster (Blues). Many projects also involve collaborators at US and foreign universities, and other national laboratories.
