Introduction
Welcome to the Computational High Energy Physics (CHEP) group page. We
pursue alternative, complementary approaches to numerical quantum field
theory to those methods based on Monte Carlo approximations of the functional
(path) integral. Our work is primarily focussed on obtaining `best' approximations,
via methods of weighted residuals, to solutions of the Schwinger-Dyson
equations. In the course of this work, we have asked many (and convincingly
answered a few) questions concerning the basic formulation of quantum field
theories.
On this page, we provide descriptions and pointers of recent publications,
to member home pages, and to group facilities. Further information about
the CHEP group can be obtained by sending inquiries to
chep-info@het.brown.edu.
General Information
Members
Currently, the following people are affiliated with the CHEP group, either
in the core at Brown University or via collaborative efforts:
Facilities
CHEP is a major participant in the Theoretical Physics Computing Facility
at Brown University, directing funds from the Department of Energy towards
the purchase of two Cray medium-scale supercomputer platforms, as well
as a collection of workstations for code development and data analysis.
For production work, the group uses the remote large-scale supercomputing
facilities at NERSC. We are beginning investigations into massively parallel
algorithms, as applied to our large sets of nonlinear equations.
