RIBF Nuclear Physics Seminar

In view of the RI Beam Factory, commissioning of which is approaching, the nuclear-physics group of RIKEN starts the "RIBF Nuclear Physics Seminar". This is a successor of the "Nuclear Physics Seminar", but is more oriented to RIBF. It would be complementary to the "Monthly Colloquium" with more comprehensive coverage of topics.

The contents will include also researches related to the study of unstable nucleus in various aspects, as well as on-going experimental and theoretical studies on unstable nuclei. For example, discussions on ideas and methods developed in studying stable nuclei should be quite useful.

The organizers of the seminar (T. Motobayashi - head, N. Aoi, H. Ueno and A. Kohama, at present) make planning for invited seminars to be held approximately once in a month. Proposal of seminars, by visitors etc, is also welcome. Please consult with the organizers. The form of the seminar is flexible. A workshop-type meeting with a few talks is an example.

Lecture Series
Contact: Nuclear Physics Seminar Comittee

The aim of this Lecture Series is to strengthen our "Research Power" further in preparation for the new era to be opened by RIKEN RI Beam Factory (RIBF).
By completing RIBF, we obtain a strong means to search for the physics of high isospin states.
A new era will come.
We will have an ability to discuss physics of unstable nuclei in full scale, not only for light nuclei but also for heavy nuclei.

To cultivate power to rewrite the textbook of the nuclear physics is another aim of this lecture series.
As there is word "Taking a lesson from the past", in order to make progress of "modern" nuclear physics, first of all, it is important to learn the concept, knowledge, and the methodology that has been built up so far.

The key word is "Audience driven" and "Video collection of the lecture".
We plan to hold the lectures following to the audiences' requests and to record the lectures on DVD.
We invite researchers of the first class that has put one's heart in the development of the nuclear physics of the present age.
