Summary 
Lattice field theory is the most reliable tool for investigating nonperturbative phenomena in particle physics. It has also become a crossdiscipline, overlapping with other physical sciences and computer science. This book covers new developments in the area of algorithms, statistical physics, parallel computers and quantum computation, as well as recent advances concerning the standard model and beyond, the QCD vacuum, the glueball, hadron and quark masses, finite temperature and density, chiral fermions, SUSY, and heavy quark effective theory
