Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks Historically, strong interactions were explored between nuclei and nucleons, and it was discovered that all strongly interacting particles - hadrons - have a partonic substructure. Nowadays, this substructure is identified with the theoretical concept of quantum chromodynamics (QCD). Its main properties - confinement and asymptotic freedom - make it a theory with many challenges, in terms of calculating physics from first principles. Instead, the strong interaction is best approached by learning about the experimental findings and their relation to quarks and gluons. The lecture highlights ongoing research in this field.
