PH2241 is a semester module in English language at Master’s level which is offered in winter semester.
This Module is included in the following catalogues within the study programs in physics.
- General catalogue of special courses
- Specific catalogue of special courses for nuclear, particle, and astrophysics
If not stated otherwise for export to a non-physics program the student workload is given in the following table.

Responsible coordinator of the module PH2241 is Laura Fabbietti.
Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
Strong Interaction in the non-perturbative regime ( Low Energy QCD)
Chiral Symmetry Breaking (CSB) and possible Restauration (CSR)
Hadron properties in the nuclear medium and link to CSR
Meson-Nucleon and Meson-Nucleus Interaction
Scattering experiments, pionic and kaonic atoms
Hadronic Resonances and Exotic bound state in low energy QCD
dense and strange matter
Link to dense and cold system as Neutron Stars
Modern experiments at different accelerator facilities to study low energy QCD processes involving hadrons and their interaction with nuclear matter under different temperature and density conditions will be presented. A complete overview of the observables and the techniques to extract the latter from experiments with accelerated beam up to few GeV will be provided.
The focus will be on Hadron properties within nuclear matter and in particular we will learn how this can be connected to a possible observation of chiral symmetry restauration. Another rather hot topic in our field is the tests with terrestrial experiments of diferent hypotheses for the content of neutron stars. The state of the art of this kind of research will be discussed as well.

Learning and Teaching Methods
The course will be based on scientific articles, mainly experimental works, that will be explained and discussed.
The articles treated during the course will be distributed during each lessons to the students.
Slides with all the exposed material will also be made available to the students.
Explenatory examples will be presented at the blackboard.
