Brief description This project will explore the fundamental mechanisms of nature making the neutron heavier than the proton; governing which nuclei are stable; and determining the current state of the Universe. Drawing on substantial supercomputing resources made available through international collaboration, this project will perform the first ab-initio simulation combining the quantum field theories governing elementary quarks, gluons, electrons and photons; namely quantum chromodynamics and quantum electrodynamics. This project will develop novel theoretical and numerical techniques to confront the otherwise elusive electromagnetic contributions to hadronic properties and in doing so, address a wide range of important aspects of hadron structure and interactions.
