Intersection of cold-atomic and nuclear physics

Date : May 12th to 13th, 2014

Venue : APCTP(Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics), Pohang, Korea

How to get to APCTP:


Scope :

The aim of this workshop is to share recent researches in Asia on cold atoms, nuclei, and nuclear matter, which we believe are fields with much overlapping physics among them. We hope this workshop can stimulate the exchange of ideas and encourage international and interdisciplinary collaboration to establish the equation of state (EOS) of nuclear matter. For this purpose, we plan to keep an informal atmosphere with limited number of participants, to provide adequate time and opportunity for discussion and mutual interaction.

Topics :

• Neutron star

• EOS of nuclear matter

• Cold atom gases

• Neutron matter

• Superfluidity

• Few-body, many-body problem

• Phase transition

Invited speakers :

• Yoshiteru Sato (Seoul National University)

• Jie Meng (Peking University)

• Zhigang Xiao (Tsinghua University)

• Yong-il Shin (Seoul National University)

• Pengjun Wang (Shanxi University)

• Zhe-Yu Shi (Tsinghua University)

• Ohashi Yoji (Keio University)

• Kei Iida (Kochi University)
