Homework and small projects
Homework assignments consist of problem sets and selected publications,
which have to be worked through and presented/discussed in class (about once a week).

Experimental information about the structure of nucleons and nuclei is mainly
obtained with scattering experiments, with e.g. hadronic or electro-magnetic
probes. Thus one has to understand possible reaction mechanisms to be able to
The general idea of the course is to present basic information on scattering
theory and its application to the atomic nuclei.
