Abstract

This chapter illustrates some of the key concepts behind optimizing the so-called Wilson-Dslash kernel, which is a frequently used component in lattice QCD calculations. Quantum chromodynamics (QCD) is the theory of the strong nuclear force responsible for binding quarks and gluons together into nuclei. It is one of the fundamental forces making up the Standard Model of particle interactions. ...
