Event at Galileo Galilei Institute


Frontiers in Nuclear and Hadronic Physics 2021

Mar 01, 2021 - Mar 12, 2021

Apply (deadline: Dec 31, 2020 )

The school is primarily addressed to Ph.D. students in Theoretical Nuclear and Hadron Physics. Participation of experimentalists and post-docs is also encouraged. The school will take place at the Galileo Galilei Institute (GGI) in Florence, from March 1 to March 12, 2021. The school is primarily addressed to Ph.D. students in Theoretical Nuclear and Hadronic Physics. Participation of experimentalists and post-doc fellows is also encouraged. The 2021 edition will be devoted to Nuclear Physics, providing a pedagogical introduction to the basic concepts and tools needed for carrying out research in nuclear structure, nuclear reactions and nuclear astrophysics. The lectures will emphasize the intimate connections among these fields, giving much attention to the interpretation of experimental data. Various theoretical frameworks for the study of nuclear systems will be presented, including both ab initio and more phenomenological approaches.

G. Colò (Milano Univ.): Density functional theory methods for nuclear physics
A. Drago (Ferrara Univ.): Dense nuclear matter in neutron stars
A. Moro (Sevilla Univ.): Modelling nuclear reactions probing the structure of exotic nuclei
F. Pederiva (Trento Univ.): New computational approaches to nuclear physics
R. Roth (Darmstadt Univ.): Ab initio calculations of nuclear structure

Important Notice:
The spread of the COVID-19 has changed our everyday lives. As many travel restrictions are still in place, even though some countries are slowly opening up again, the situation remains unpredictable. If the situation keeps steadily improving, the school will be held in person, and a reduced number of participants (about 30) will be able to attend the lectures. The GGI will implement social distancing both in classes and in offices. The institute will also provide surgical masks for all the participants. All the common areas will be periodically sanitized and endowed with disinfectant dispensers. We invite everybody interested in participating in person to apply, even if, as of today, they are subject to travel restrictions. We will monitor the evolution of the COVID-19 emergency and, in the case in which some admitted students will not be able to travel due to the prolongation of the emergency, we may consider the remote participation to the school (through an interactive platform such as Zoom, G-meet, or Teams). Consult this webpage periodically to be informed of any change in the situation. More information for travellers to Italy may be found in the following government webpage
