Event Details

We review recent advances in the study of quarks and gluons in terms of their propagators and vertices in the infrared. These fundamental building blocks of the strongly interacting quantum field theory feed into the Bethe-Salpeter and Faddeev equations which unveil the internal structure of mesons and baryons. Continuum QCD has made significant advances in reliable evaluation of the spectrum, masses, decay constants, distribution amplitudes, parton distribution functions, generalized parton distributions and form factors. The explanations and predictions of continuum QCD for the experimental efforts in different world laboratories such as LHCb, Belle, Belle II, BESIII, FOCUS and BABAR have remarkable agreement with observations.


Dr. Adnan Bashir did his PhD in the field of particle physics from Durham University, England in 1995. Currently, he is serving as Professor at the Institute of Physics and Mathematics at the University of Michoacán in Mexico which he joined in 1998. During his academic career he has been associated with a number of international universities and research institutions. He was a visiting Professor at the Kent State University, USA, Argonne National Laboratory, USA, Durham University, England and at
the National University of Mexico. He worked as a Researcher at the Quaid-i-Azam University, Pakistan, Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Italy and the University of Tasmania, Australia in his early career. He has collaborated with about 60 international researchers
from 15 different countries. Dr. Bashir has delivered more than 100 seminars/lectures in national and international conferences around the world. Dr. Bashir has trained 41 research students at different academic levels: 7 post doctoral fellows, 10 Ph.D. students, 12 master students and 12 undergraduate students.

Dr. Bashir has published 109 articles, 67 of these are published in international refereed journals, 40 in international conference proceedings and chapters in books. His publications have attracted about
than 3900 citations. He has been a reviewer of several international prestigious journals such as Physical Review, Journal of Physics G., Foundations of Physics, Few Body Systems, Physics Letters B and Mexican Journal of Physics. He is a regular member of the Mexican and Michoacán Academies of Sciences. He is a member of National Commission to evaluate nomination proposals for the prestigious Medal of the Division of Particles and Fields of the Mexican Society of Physics. Dr. Bashir is a member of the international organizing committee of the Latin American Symposium on High Energy Physics.
