ECT* in Trento Up: Theory
The character of nuclear physics experiments has changed with the advent
of the so-called
detectors which measure for each event up to several thousand observables.
Equally important, the physics questions have changed. Some of the questions
addressed in experiments, like the study of the equation of state, of in
medium properties of hadrons, of many-body reaction mechanisms, or of multifragmentation
can only be answered by studying multi-particle correlations. Very man-power
intensive work is necessary to achieve the interesting physics results.
This not yet generally honoured by the funding agencies. Adequate support
for this task is strongly recommended.
