Tantalizing hints of new physics in QCD

Quantum chromodynamics, or QCD, is the theory of the strong interaction between quarks and gluons. Steven Gottlieb, a leading scholar of QCD research, is using the power of supercomputing to explore ‘tantalizing hints' of new physics in discrepancies between experimental and theoretical results.
