Abstract

The first principle calculation of Lattice QCD is complicated and usually requires significant computational power to perform the calculation. By applying the Chiral Perturbation Theory (ChPT), the calculation becomes much simpler. This project is to find a set of parameters called low energy constants (LECs) in the ChPT calculation that gives results that agree with the Lattice QCD calculations. Once this is done, ChPT can be used to give a better prediction on experimental results.
