Hadron Spectroscopy - the Low Energy Frontier of the Standard Model

Experimental Particle Physics seminar

Hadron Spectroscopy - the Low Energy Frontier of the Standard Model

  • Event time: 4:00pm until 5:00pm
  • Event date: 31st May 2019
  • Speaker: Professor David Ireland (University of Glasgow )
  • Location: 4305 (Higgs Seminar Room) , King's Buildings

Event details

Hadrons represent the manifestation of the strong nuclear interaction in the real world, so they must be a key part of understanding why the world is the way it is. In this talk I will look at several aspects of hadron spectroscopy that are being addressed by current experimental programmes, including the light baryon spectrum, exotic mesons, recent and planned pentaquark searches and the robustness of old measurements. I will also try to bridge the (artificial) divide between low and high energy nuclear and particle physics by illustrating where the two communities could and should collaborate more strongly.
