Workshop Mathematical Aspects
of Hadron Physics

Trento, October 8-12, 2012

QCD presents a fundamental problem that is unique in the history of science. Never before have we been confronted by a theory whose elementary excitations are not those degrees-of-freedom readily accessible via experiment; i.e., whose elementary excitations are confined. Moreover, there are reasons to believe that QCD generates forces which are so strong that less than 2% of a nucleon’s mass can be attributed to the current-quark masses; viz., a phenomenon known as dynamical chiral symmetry breaking.

There has been progress in mathematics, which began roughly fifteen years ago with a realisation that the process of renormalisation is naturally ex- pressed via Hopf algebra structures.

The purpose of the workshop MAHP2012 is to bring together experts in: the Hopf algebra structure of Dyson-Schwinger equations (DSEs) and renormalisation; perturbative QCD; and the application of DSEs to phenomena in hadro-nuclear and -particle physics.

Our immediate goal is to open a dialogue between mathematicians and physicists, so that each can come to appreciate the challenges and needs of the other.
