The primary goal of this project is to provide a thorough qualitative and quantitative understanding of non-perturbative phenomena in the chiral regime of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) and related models via computer simulations. Many of these non-perturbative aspects are still poorly understood, like for example colour confinement, or the spontaneous breaking of chiral symmetry and its restoration either at high temperature or at large chemical potential where new and partly unexplored phases of strongly interacting matter emerge.One of the main challenges for non-perturbative QCD calculations lies in the accurate and reliable determination of the hadronic properties which in many cases constitute the main source of theoretical uncertainties in the direct confrontation of the theory with experiment. The precise ab-initio calculations that we are proposing in this project will enable a further confirmation of the theoretical framework and provide stringent tests of the Standard Model (SM). Moreover they will constitute invaluable contributions towards the potential discovery of new physics beyond the SM at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).In the same spirit we also aim to put the non-perturbative study of QCD and QCD-like theories to wider use beyond the SM. This is achieved by our proposal to derive analogous non-perturbative properties of supersymmetric gauge theories that are likely to turn out to be the more fundamental theories in Particle Physics. This approach is made possible on the one hand through our recent developments in understanding and simulating QCD and related theories in the chiral regime, but also through our novel, non-perturbative studies of (pure gauge) QCD in the limit of a large number of quark colours. In particular, our proposed calculations allow to build a bridge between the conventional Quantum Field Theory approach and alternatives like string theories which try to explain our microscopic world as the result of resonating strings and branes. The understanding of the non-perturbative properties related to confinement and chiral symmetry breaking of large-N and SUSY field theories will lead to new insights into the fundamental mechanisms and theories behind it. To gain a non-perturbative understanding of these theories is one of the main objectives of this proposal and will be of highest relevance in view of the potential discovery of BSM physics at the LHC.
