{\it Quantum tomography} is a model-independent approach to characterizing quantum mechanical systems. Recent research in nuclear and particle physics has led to confronting issues of coherence and entanglement, that were sometimes suppressed, or sometimes implemented with models. The classic example is the parton model replacing quantum mechanical formalism by classical probabilistic proxies. Qu ... More

The n-particle irreducible effective action is a powerful approach to study non-perturbative systems. The method provides a systematic expansion for which the truncation occurs at the level of the action. At the 2PI level one can renormalize using a complicated procedure which involves introducing multiple sets of counterterms, but the method cannot be extended to higher orders. We have developed ...

We present a field-strength description for a simple system of SU(2) charges with spherical symmetry and confining boundary conditions. The static Yang-Mills Maxwell equations admit three types of solutions for this system. Type-0 solutions have no topological structure. Type-1 and Type-2 solutions involve a topologically charge domain wall consisting of a surface volume with CP-odd field stren ... More

A fundamental question in hadron and nuclear physics is how the mass scale for protons and other hadrons emerges from QCD, even in the limit of zero quark mass. I will discuss a new approach to the origin of the QCD mass scale and color confinement based on "light-front holography", a formalism which relates the bound-state amplitudes in the fifth dimension of AdS space to the boost ...
