LHC has not yet found any significant deviation from the Standard Model
at large energies and thus, indirect high-precision searches for
signatures of physics beyond the Standard Model at low energies become
more and more important. For any quantity involving the strong nuclear
force, the only known approach for an ab-initio treatment at low
energies is a numerical method known as Lattice QCD. High-precision
calculations using Lattice QCD are essential ingredients in finding
potential small deviations between experimental measurements and
theoretical predictions from the Standard Model. In this talk I will
give some examples for quantities that can be used to test the Standard
Model of Particle Physics and discuss the status and plans for the
necessary lattice QCD calculations.
