Multihadron dynamics in a box

Recent years have witnessed a growing interest in the study of three-particle systems in lattice QCD. Substantial progress has been achieved both in the development of the methods that enable one to extract infinite-volume observables from lattice data produced on finite-size lattices, as well as in Monte-Carlo calculations of the three-particle systems, but important recent developments in the two-particle sector will also be addressed, since these questions are inherently related to each other.

In particular, it is planned to discuss the following questions:

  • What is the best strategy in the analysis of data in the three-particle sector?
    What are the quantities to extract form the finite-volume sector?
  • How the further progress in the field looks like after the derivation of the quantization condition (analysis of the data on the Roper resonance, three-particle decay matrix elements, etc.)?
  • What are the present status and immediate perspectives of lattice simulations in the three-particle sector? For example, can one expect the calculation of the excited levels in the three-particle sector? Are the calculations in many-body (four and more) systems feasible in a forseeable future?
