Supervisor:
Department of Physics
Synopsis:

This scientific field presents formidable challenges both experimentally and theoretically, simply because we are dealing with the submicroscopic domain, where much of our classical intuition regarding the behaviour of objects fails us. The lecture is a basic introduction to very interesting regions of subatomic physics.

Requirements:
Syllabus of lectures:

1.Introduction - basic definitions and historical review

2.Collision kinematics

3.Cross section properties

4.Basic features of atomic nuclei and nuclear forces

5.Nuclear models

6.Radioactive decay of nuclei

7.Experimental techniques of nuclear and particle physics

8.Nuclear reactions

9.Nuclear matter, its study and features

10.Particles and their interactions

11.Unified theories of matter and interactions

12.Applications of nuclear and particle physics, nuclear astrophysics
