Responsible coordinator of the module PH2152 is the Dean of Studies at Physics Department.
Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
The lecture covers the analysis tools required for analysing high-energetic hadron reactions, featuring special techniques of partial-wave analysis and further principles of particle physics. The focus is on hadron reactions of low to medium momentum transfer, where electromagnetic and diffractive strong interaction is present. The tools are explained along simple, self-generated simulated data, and employed to real-physics experimental data.
After successful completion of this module, the student is able to
- understand the results of a partial-wave analyse of 3 or more-body decays of hadron resonances, and evaluate them especially regarding the appearance of overlapping resonances and interference effects.
- characterize the applied formalism for strong an electromagnetic interaction.
- rephrase the key steps of the respective data analysis.
No specific further requierements, programming experience of advantage

Description of exams and course work
In an oral exam the learning outcome is tested using comprehension questions and sample problems.
In accordance with §12 (8) APSO the exam can be done as a written test. In this case the time duration is 90 minutes.
There is a possibility to take the exam at the end of the semester.
