Machine-learning-based sampling in lattice QCD

Despite being in the early days, machine-learning-based sampling developped for lattice QCD simulations promises advances not only in physics, but also in machine learning.


  • Sustainability

    This ongoing collection brings together articles from Nature Reviews journals about how physicists can contribute to environmental sustainability – both by working on questions that have direct relevance to sustainability goals and understanding Earth’s climate, but also by changing the ways physicists work.

  • On your wavelength

    On your wavelength is a new podcast about physics and publishing from the Nature journal editors. We talk to the authors and editors of recent papers discussing the latest insights.

    15 years ago, topological insulators were discovered. Soon thereafter, topological behaviour was discovered in many different systems, including topological semimetals, superconductors and magnets. Studying these topological materials has led to advances in our understanding of physics, and in practical achievements towards devices and applications.


  • 60 years ago the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Eugene Wigner, J. Hans D. Jensen and Maria Goeppert Mayer.
