Infrared fixed points on the lattice

KMI Special Lecture

KMI Science Symposia (ES635)

The existence of infrared fixed points in gauge theories minimally
coupled to fermions has interesting consequences for model
building. Lattice investigations can provide valuable insight into the
nonperturbative dynamics of such theories. In these lectures we
develop some of the tools needed to identify and characterize IR
fixed points from numerical simulations of the theories defined on
the lattice.
The lectures will cover:
1. RG flow, fixed points and lattice simulations
2. Scaling of physical observables
3. Numerical studies of RG flows
