Welcome to my research group "Quarks, hadrons and nuclei". We investigate how the fundamental constituents of matter – quarks and gluons – bind together to form hadrons and nuclei, in particular also exotic hadrons such as tetraquarks, pentaquarks and other unconventional systems. The underlying theory of the strong interaction, Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), shows many interesting non-perturbative phenomena like confinement, dynamical mass generation and the formation of bound states and resonances, which are not yet fully understood. To study these phenomena, we employ numerical simulations using functional methods, e.g., in the form of Dyson-Schwinger equations and covariant Bethe-Salpeter and Faddeev equations.
