Lattice gauge theory1 is now ten years old. Apart from the theoretical insight the lattice formulation gives, it is very well suited for computer simulations, as its inventor advocated already some five years ago at this school2. Since three years3 this approach has extracted useful information out of lattice gauge theory and spurred many interesting questions.
