In general, the members of the PNC focus group have a lot of international collaborations as well as domestic ones. For example, Prof. Hsiang-Nan Li has been collaborating with many theorists around the world: Satoshi Mishima (Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton Univ), Junegone Chay (Korea Univ), Soumitra Nandi (Univ of Calcutta), Takeshi Kurimoto, (Univ of Toyama), Makiko Nagashima (Univ of Montreal), Tony Sanda (Kanagawa Univ), Yue-Long Shen (Ocean University of China), besides with the theorists in Taiwan: Wei-Shu Hou (National Taiwan Univ), Yeo-Yie Charng (Academia Sinica), and Chuan-Hung Chen (National Cheng-Kung Univ). Here we do not attempt to list all collaborations of all members of the PNC focus group. Rather, we report the international collaboration which has been newly established this year.
During 2006-2007, we have set up a new international collaboration between JLQCD and TWQCD Collaborations. It is well known that JLQCD Collaboration constitutes an elite group of lattice field theorists, who have been playing a vital role in the lattice QCD community. Since 2006, JLQCD has started the project of simulating dynamical overlap fermion using the newly installed IBM BlueGene supercomputer with peak speed ~50 Teraflops. In the summer of 2005, Shoji Hashimoto (the group leader of JLQCD) asked Ting-Wai Chiu and TWQCD members to collaborate with JLQCD on the dynamical overlap project. Since then, we have had many mutual visits between JLQCD and TWQCD, and now we have worked out several important results (see Sections IV and V). Furthermore, we also encourage local people (faculty and graduate students) to work on lattice QCD, and to join this international collaboration. One of the goals of the new journal club on lattice QCD is to get more people involved in lattice QCD.
Our goal of PNC focus group is to establish more large scale international collaborations in the near future.
