EMMI workshop: International symposium on Clustering as a Window on the Hierarchical Structure of Quantum Systems (CLUSHIQ2022) Oct 31 - Nov 3, 2022

Venue Invited Speakers Registration
Transportation Program Organizing Committee

This symposium is aiming at discussing why our material world has a hierarchical structure: quarks, hadrons, nuclei, atoms, and molecules. We focus on clusters and strong correlations in each hierarchy, which may provide keys to universally understanding the hierarchical structure. We also discuss characteristic features of correlations/clustering in each hierarchy. As such, participants are expected from a wide range of fields: hadron-, nuclear-, atomic- and molecular physics.

The topics include:
1. Exotic hadrons using high-energy heavy-ion collisions,
2. Lattice QCD/Ab-initio calculations
3. Exotic nuclei, alpha clusters, multi-neutron clusters, NN correlation
4. Three nucleon force, many-body force
5. Hyper nuclei, strangeness, hyperon-nucleon interactions
6. Ultracold atoms and exotic atomic/molecular states/phases, quantum simulation
7. Efimov physics, few-body physics. 

This symposium is organized by Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas, “Clustering as a window on the hierarchical structure of quantum systems”
