The scattering of spinning hadrons from lattice QCD
Hadron spectroscopy is predominantly the study of resonances that decay via the strong interaction into a multitude of stable hadrons, such as the pion. The vast majority of resonances decay via an intermediate hadron with non-zero intrinsic spin. In this thesis, I will present the results of scattering calculations featuring mesons with non-zero intrinsic spin. Before doing so, I will first give a brief introduction to QCD and review the framework necessary to perform lattice QCD calculations in Chapters 1 and 2.
In Chapter 3, I present the first lattice calculation of
In Chapter 4, I investigate
I present the first calculation of coupled
In Chapter 6, the exotic
