Abstract: 

Quantum Yang-Mills theories have mathematically well-defined formulations on lattices, known as lattice gauge theories. I will give a brief introduction to lattice gauge theories and a survey of existing results, followed by an overview of a number of longstanding open problems and recent progress on some of these questions.
