While the electrons in atoms are elementary particles (as far as we can tell), protons and neutrons are tightly bound states of quarks. In fact there are a plethora of other, short-lived states composed of quarks and antiquarks. All of these composite particles are called hadrons. In this talk I will introduce Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), the theory of how quarks bind to form hadrons via the “strong force.” There are many similarities between QCD and condensed matter physics of materials. I will draw out these similarities to show how QCD can be solved numerically.
