Experiment: Benjamin Dönigus (CERN & U Frankfurt), Manuel Lorenz (GSI & U Frankfurt)


Gerhard Burau (HGS-HIRe)


HGS-HIRe lecture weeks are crossdisciplinary events that cover experimental, theoretical and technical aspects of a particular research field together. This year's lecture week on hadron physics will focus on the nature of hyperons with particular emphasis on their properties and behavior in nuclear matter. Aspects like hyperon-nucleon and hyperon-hyperon interactions, hyperons in nuclear matter and in neutron stars will be addressed.

The lectures will be given by established experts of this field of reasearch, who are extremely knowledgeable and didactically experienced. Doctoral students who are working and/or interested in hadron physics or related research fields are very welcome to attend this lecture week.

For registration please send a brief email to info[at]hgs-hire.de as soon as possible.
