The ALPHA collaboration is a consortium of theoretical physicists interested in lattice QCD and numerical simulations. This page contains brief descriptions of the research interests of the collaboration, links to the available documentations, publications and some practical information.

The name of the collaboration derives from the symbol given to running couplings in QCD. The energy dependence of a particular non-perturbatively defined coupling has been determined in the theory with two massless quarks over a wide range of energies:
