Understanding the strong nuclear force requires simulations on enormous computers. State-of-the-art simulations typically need the computation of billion-dimensional integrals. Such calculations cannot be done on a standard computer. Very soon exascale supercomputers will become available. These computers are capable to do more than 10^18 operations per second (exaFLOPS). Calculations on such big scales, however, come with its own challenges.
About Benjamin Jäger
Benjamin Jäger graduated with magna cum laude in 2010 from the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz with the thesis “Lattice determination of the leading order hadronic contribution to (g – 2)”. Afterwards he was a Research -assistant at Helmholtz Institute Mainz with a PhD Scholarship until he graduated summa cum laude in 2013 with the thesis “Hadronic Matrix Elements in Lattice QCD”. From 2013 to 2016 he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Swansea University and had the same title at the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH) Zürich from 2016 to 2017.
His research interests include lattice gauge theories, high performance computing, hadron structure and form factors, anomalous magnetic moment (g − 2), symmetries at finite temperature as well as sign-problem and Complex Langevin simulations.
