QCD-TNT-II will address critically the hard problems that remain unsolved in QCD, connecting non-perturbative continuum and lattice ideas in new and original ways. The general themes of the workshop include this time the understanding confinement, chiral symmetry breakdown, and the nature of topological charge, for all of which there is more than one plausible scenario.  All these phenomena are non-perturbative and probe the strongly-coupled infrared region of QCD.  We look for ways to reconcile  apparent discrepancies in various schools of thought, with an emphasis on enforcing gauge invariance, and for lattice simulations in specially-constructed scenarios that can accurately compare and contrast the proposed non-perturbative mechanisms of QCD.

Topics include
  • Lattice calculations in different covariant gauges
  • Center vortices and confinement
  • Chiral symmetry breaking
  • Green’s functions in the background of vortices and condensates
  • Bethe-Salpeter equations
  • QCD phenomenology and the gluon mass
  • Yang-Mills theories in lower space-time dimensions
  • QCD at Finite temperature and density
