Title
Are the Parameters of the Standard Model fine-tuned for Carbon-based Life?  
Guest Speaker

Guest Affiliation
NC State  
When
Thursday, December 4, 2014 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm  
Location
Physics Auditorium (Rm. 202)  
Details

I discuss some recent results obtained using ab initio lattice simulations of effective field theory to probe nuclear structure. I present recent lattice calculations of the Hoyle state of 12C and whether or not light quark masses must be fine-tuned for the viability of carbon-based life.
