TITLE Nuclear physics from String theory
(in English)
SPEAKER Prof. Koji Hashimoto
DATE: May 10 (Tue.) 11:00 − 12:00
PLACE: Kenkyu Honkan 1F, Meeting Room 1


Describing nuclear properties directly from QCD is a long standing problem. I apply string theory technique called AdS/CFT correspondence, to solve this issue. With the technique, I can show a formation of atomic nuclei and their important properties such as nuclear density saturation, starting from strongly coupled QCD. This opens up an interdisciplinary interaction between nuclear physics, particle physics, and string theory.
