Courses and Schedule

VO 2 Hadron Physics at Accelerators, Symmetries and Neutron Stars 2 Fabbietti, L. Thu, 10:30–12:30, PH 2024

Learning and Teaching Methods

For each lecture one or two scientific papers will be provided prior to the lecture

Students are asked to read the papers priors to the lecture

during the lecture the papers are explained and additional information are added in a more global context

additional references are provided in the lectures

Questions are discussed at the end of each lecture to check the comprehension of the subject

Lecture notes are provied prior to each lectures


Slides, papers, dedicated book references


provided during the lectures, prior to them

Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

There will be an oral exam of 25 minutes duration. Therein the achievement of the competencies given in section learning outcome is tested exemplarily at least to the given cognition level using comprehension questions and sample calculations.

Exam Repetition

The exam may be repeated at the end of the semester.
