Research highlights

Ab initio calculation of the neutron-proton mass difference

We determined the neutron-proton mass difference with an accuracy of 0.3 MeV. This figure shows this neutron-proton mass difference as a function of two fundamental parameters of nature: the fine structure constant and the difference between up and down quark masses.

Full result for the QCD equation of state with 2+1 flavors

Entropy and energy density of the strongly interacting matter as a function of the temperature. The insert shows the speed of sound.

Ab-initio determination of light hadron masses

The light hadron spectrum of QCD. Horizontal lines and bands are the experimental values with their decay widths. Our results on the masses are shown by solid circles.
