Lattice QCD  

In General > s.a. lattice gauge theories [general references, variables, action]; quantum gauge theory.
* Dense baryonic matter: Although QCD is considered a well-confirmed theory, there are few reliable calculational techniques for handling it in this regime, and numerical computation using lattice gauge theory is currently blocked by the fermion sign problem (the problem of evaluating the highly oscillatory integral that occurs when lattice field theory is applied to a system with a high density of fermions), and the only place in nature where it is realized is inside a neutron star–not a convenient laboratory.
