I started passively looking for topics - quantum electrodynamics, perturbation theory, general relativity, quantum chromodynamics - I was all over the place
Cherednikob and Van der Veken offer a systematic pedagogical introduction to the quantum field theory approach to the quantitative analysis of Wilson path-ordered exponentials in quantum chromodynamics and the applications of this formalism to the study of gauge-invariant quark and gluon correlation functions, which can be associated with the three-dimensional transverse momentum-dependent parton density functions, commonly known now as TMD pdfs or simple TMDs.
Although quantum chromodynamics (QCD) was formulated in the framework of the Hamiltonian method in the 1960s-1970s, it did not solve the problem of strong interactions (the absence of fundamental justification of confinement), and the problem of the fundamental interactions unification (Theory of Everything) was complicated by mysterious nature of dark matter and dark energy (~ 95% of the Universe);
Ultimately, these developments will radically alter the way in which to approach some of the most challenging questions in physics, ranging from the simulation of cold atom systems to non-equilibrium or high-density situations in quantum chromodynamics and the standard model.
Research and development on theoretical physics and quantum chromodynamics is carried on by the system.
