The Strong Interaction Matter

Speaker:Prof. Fan WAN
Affiliation:Joint Center for Particle Nuclear Physics and Cosmology (CPNPC)
Nanjing University and Purple Mountain Observatory, the Academy of China
Date:April 6, 2009 (Mon)
Time:10:30 - 11:30 a.m.
Venue:Room 522, 5/F, Chong Yuet Ming Physics Building, HKU


Up to now only meson, baryon, nucleus and neutron star are observed forms of strong interaction matter. Other forms of strong interaction matter, the quark gluon plasma, quark star, color superconducting matter, Bose condensate matter, etc. are allowed by the fundamental strong interaction, the quantum cromodydamics (QCD). I will discuss QCD moleculars, especially the QCD isomers. The theoretical predictions and the experimental candidates will be discussed in this talk. Based on these studies we expect there should be a color chemistry world.

Coffee and tea will be served 20 minutes prior to the seminar.
