Event description

Lattice Field Theories are a mature tool that yields robust predictions for precision tests of the Standard Model and potential BSM candidates. Larger volumes, finer lattice spacings and decorrelated configurations are some of the requirements to tame the systematic errors still affecting the current simulations. Improved algorithms, and strong mathematical foundations, are going to be a key ingredient in order to achieve these goals. Machine Learning and Quantum Computing are likely to bring new perspectives to these problems.

New Exascale machines will soon become available. They will provide increased computational power and new challenges for algorithms to run efficiently. It is inconceivable to run on state-of-the-art supercomputers without being worried by the energy budget of simulations. We will devote time during the workshop on the issue of energy efficiency.

The Algorithms23 workshop on recent progress in algorithms for lattice field theory brings together experts for four days of discussions to assess the latest developments in the field and future directions.

The topics will cover the latest developments in

  • Master Field simulations
  • Multilevel
  • Implementation on current and future hardware (exascale projects)
  • Mathematical foundations
  • Machine Learning
  • Quantum Computing
  • Energy efficiency
