Benjamin Jäger: The strong force under extreme conditions

DIAS lecture

The strong force is one of the four fundamental forces in nature and, as the name suggests, is the strongest of all four interactions and responsible for more than 99% of the mass surrounding us. Shortly after the big bang, the universe was in a very hot and dense state, which cooled down due to its rapid expansion. As a consequence, the whole universe cooled down from a Quark-Gluon Plasma (where quarks and gluons are quasi-free) to the Hadronic phase (where quarks are bound into protons and neutrons). Understanding this transition will help us understand the early time of the universe. It further guides and complements the extensive search in heavy-ion collision experiments all over the world.

This lecture takes place at the DIAS seminarroom

We hope to see you alle there
