High energy density physics (HEDP) is an actively growing field that exploits the ability of various modern devices to create, probe and control matter in extreme conditions such as high pressure, high temperature and exotic dynamic environment, which helps advancing the inertial fusion research, addressing key issues in astrophysics, and pushing forward fundamental studies and applications in this field.
The Summer School aims at bringing together of young scientists and students working in the field of high energy density physics for fruitful discussions on the fundamental physics and the recent progresses, to drive further advances and to stimulate new worldwide collaborations. A mini-workshop will be held on parallel to get all the enrolled participates involved in discussing the current status, the frontier and the future trends of HEDP and other related fields.
This school is organized by the Atomic and Molecular Physics Group (AMPG) in Department of Physics of National University of Defense Technology, which is located in Changsha, Hunan, China. This course provides an in-depth introduction to the field and includes approximately 70 hours of lectures on 12 days from Jul. 9 - Jul. 21 2017.
The summer school is sponsored by College of Science at the National University of Defense Technology.
