I will discuss progress and prospects of using lattice QCD methods to address topics of current and future relevance to the global high-energy physics program. In particular, I will focus on the hadronic contributions to muon (g-2), flavour physics for LHC and Belle-II, and potential QCD inputs for the long-baseline neutrino program and for future precision Higgs measurements at a linear collider.

With rapid theoretical progress in QCD ongoing since the mid-1990s, experiment and theory have been pushing forward hand-in-hand, with theoretical advances allowing more and more to be learned from the wealth of experimental data, while novel experimental results in turn inspire new theoretical ideas. As various subfields in QCD have advanced and evolved, new questions and directions have...

The SM cannot explain the origin of the weak scale, nor the origin of dark matter, nor the cosmic surfeit of baryons. The answers to these and other questions could conceivably come from new physics at either high energy --- or low energy, through mixing with an as yet undetected hidden sector. I will draw a suite of examples from the precision frontier, including the g-2 of the muon...
