Member's picture

Research Areas

Atomic nuclei are made of protons and neutrons bound by the exchange of Yukawa's pion and other mesons. Also, protons and neutrons are made of quarks bound by the exchange of gluons. These strong interactions are governed by the non-Abelian gauge theory called the quantum chromodynamics (QCD). On the basis of theoretical and numerical analyses of QCD, we study the interactions between the nucleons, properties of the dense quark matter realized at the center of neutron stars, and properties of the hot quark-gluon plasma realized in the early Universe. Strong correlations common in QCD, graphene and cold fermionic atoms are also studied theoretically.
