Simulating Quarks and Gluons
What is a quark? What is a gluon? And why are they always hidden in things like protons and neutrons? This talk will describe Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), which is the theory of quarks and gluons,and how computers can be used to study things about the theory that cannot be calculated by hand.
