4th CNS International Summer School (CISS05)

The 4th CNS International Summer School will be held at the Wako campus of the Center for Nuclear Study (CNS), the University of Tokyo, in the period of August 18 - 23, 2005 .

This Summer School aims at providing basic knowledge and perspectives of nuclear physics for graduate stundents and postdocs. It consists of lectures by leading scientists in the field of both experimental and theoretical nuclear physics. Each lecture will start with an introductory talk from the fundamental point of view and end with up-to-date topics in the relevant field.

Although this summer school is intended to provide lectures in a wide-ranged fields, including some pheripheral field such as accelerator physics, lectures in this year put main emphasis on physics about various aspects of "nuclear structure". Scheduled lecturers are as follows:

  • G.F. Bertsch (Washington, USA)
    "Nuclear structure in mean-field theory and its extensions"
  • M.N. Harakeh (KVI, the Netherland)
    "Collective modes investigated by inelastic scattering and charge-exchange reactions with magnetic spectrometers"
  • R. Machleidt (Idaho, USA)
    "Nuclear Forces"
  • T. Kajino (NAO, Japan)
    "Nucleosynthesis in Supernovae and the Big-Bang"
  • K. Yabana (Tsukuba, Japan)
    "Novel computational approaches for nuclear reactions"
  • N. Aoi (RIKEN, Japan)
    "Exotic structure of unstable nuclei revealed through a gamma-ray spectroscopy technique"
  • E. Ideguchi (CNS, Japan)
    "Study of high-spin states by using stable and unstable nuclear beams"
  • T. Mizusaki (Senshu/CNS, Japan)
    "Shell model calculation -- from basics to the latest methods --"
  • T. Teranishi (Kyushu, Japan)
    "Low-energy radioactive beam experiments for nuclear astrophysics"
  • T. Uesaka (CNS, Japan)
    "Studies of new excitation modes in nuclei via exothermic nuclear reactions"

Short presentations by stundents and PostDocs are also planned.

CNS welcomes gladly participations of young physicists wide from the world, especially from Asian countries. The organizer may provide living expenses of young students within the limited resource. We can also cover travel expenses of a limited number of participants. If you need the financial supports, please contanct us.
