Research interests

 I am interested in all aspects of QCD, including Light-Front Quantization and its applications to gauge theories. This is a Hamiltonian approach to relativistic quantum field theory, where wavefunction is defined on a null-plane in spacetime, rather than a space-like hypersurface. It has kinematical and dynamical advantages: Lorentz-boost invariance and simplified vacuum structure.

Here is a Physics Reports review of light-front quantization, and lectures on applications in hadronic physics.

 

 

Recently I have been collaborating with Guy de Teramond on applications of AdS/CFT to QCD, using holography to obtain new information on hadronic spectra,  wavefunctions, and dynamics.  See recent lecture..
