Prolegomena to any Future Computer Evaluation of the QCD Mass Spectrum

  • Giorgio Parisi
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 115)


In recent years we have seen many computer based evaluations of the QCD mass spectrum1. At the present moment a reliable control of the systematic errors is not yet achieved; as far as the main sources of systematic errors are the non zero values of the lattice spacing and the finite size of the box, in which the hadrons are confined, we need to do extensive computations on lattices of different shapes in order to be able to extrapolate to zero lattice spacing and to infinite box. While it is necessary to go to larger lattices, we also need efficient algorithms in order to minimize the statistical and systematic errors and to decrease the CPU time (and the memory) used in the computation.
