Physics Department Summer Lectures 2020

"Introduction to high energy spin physics"

Presented by Yoshitaka Hatta, BNL

Tuesday, July 7, 2020, 12:00 pm —

In the first part, I give an elementary introduction to hadron physics and QCD (Quantum Chromodynamics), and explain how scattering experiments allow us to probe the internal structure of the proton. In the second part, I focus on spin physics. I introduce the notion of spin in particle physics and then point out that understanding the spin of a composite particle (in particular the proton) is an fascinating subfield of QCD. I give an overview of the basic problems and the current experimental/theoretical status, as well as an outlook for the future.
