Light-front dynamics is a Hamiltonian formulation with Boost-invariant eigenstates that allows a rigorous description of hadronic and nuclear phenomena from first principles in quantum chromodynamics. This framework allows the calculations of decay rates, scattering amplitudes, correlations, spin effects, phases, distributions and other hadronic observables from first principles, and can also illuminate novel QCD effects.
