Current work in QCD

  1. Aug 26, 2008 #1
    I'm interested to find out a bit more about current work that is going on in QCD.What are the main areas of research? What are the main problems that people are working on? Where could I find some further information about current research in QCD?

    Thanks

    This is a rather vast question. I will just copy/past the list of questions from the section "QCD" in the introduction to the NSAC long range plan from last year :
    DOE/NSF Nuclear Science Advisory Committee
    See also :
    Nuclear Physics European Collaboration Committee (their long range plan dates back from 2004)

    I think that people were doing "Lattice QCD" in the early 1980s or even earlier. Since then computers have become much more powerful. So, have any of the outstanding problems been solved this way?
