Quarks in a hyperdiamond lattice


Lattice studies of theories with fermions are complicated by the phenomenon of doubling and its consequences for chiral symmetry. The discovery of graphene -- a two dimensional honeycomb lattice with chiral fermion modes -- triggered the search for a higher dimensional generalization of chiral fermions in the lattice. We will describe the motivations and the current status of this search.
