CNR Nuclear Theory and Phenomenology

  • Studies of the dense-matter nuclear equation-of-state

  • Modeling of neutron-star and white-dwarf interiors, focusing on effects of temperature and magnetic fields

  • Search for new states of matter inside stars and during stellar mergers

  • Field-theoretical modeling of the quark-gluon structure of nucleons, mesons, and nuclei

  • Development of methods to analyze information provided by experiment on the quark-gluon plasma and the phase transition leading to this state of matter

  • Computer modeling of relativistic heavy-ion collisions

  • Phenomenological studies of pion-nucleon scattering to extract information on nucleon resonances
