Dr. Umberto Tamponi, Researcher at INFN Sezione di Torino and Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Mississippi, will present: "Exotic Matters"
All the matter that surrounds us is made of simple building blocks: protons, neutrons and electrons. Protons and neutrons are themselves made of even simpler constituents, quarks. But there's much more than meets the eyes. New particles with unexpected properties are being discovered constantly at collider experiments around the world. These new discoveries are called "exotic hadrons" and they are reshaping our understanding of how quarks interact with each other to create new particles. Join us for a tour among tetraquarks, pentaquarks and the most recent discoveries in this exciting field of particle physics!
When: Tuesday, March 21, 2023, 6:00pm - 7:00pm.
Where: Heartbreak Coffee, 265 North Lamar Boulevard Suite G, Oxford, Mississippi 38655
