The detector of the PANDA experiment at FAIR is optimized for hadron spectroscopy especially in the charm sector. Main topics of the PANDA physics program are the search for new and predicted states and the precise measurement of the line shape of new and already discovered resonances, e.g. the X(3872). This will be done by using the energy scan method for measuring the line shape very precisely a ... More

The description of nuclei starting from the constituent nucleons and the realistic interactions among them has been a long-standing goal in nuclear physics. In addition to the complex nature of nuclear forces with two-nucleon, three-nucleon and possibly even four-nucleon components, one faces the quantum-mechanical many-nucleon problem governed by an interplay between bound and continuum states. I ... More

The supercritical fields cause the instability of the vacuum, which can decay spontaneously via creation of electron-positron pairs [1]. Such strong fields can be achieved in low-energy heavy-ion collisions. At the future FAIR facility it will be possible to produce sufficient amount of heavy ions of required energies [2]. ... More

Understanding the equation of state (EOS) of nuclear matter is of fundamental importance in many areas of nuclear physics and astrophysics [1]. The EOS may be divided into a symmetric matter part independent of the isospin asymmetry and an isospin term, also quoted as symmetry energy $E_{sym}(\rho)$, that enters with a factor $\delta^2$ into the equation of state [2], where $\delta = (\rho_n - \r ...

Collisions of highly charged ions allow to study relativistic and quantum electrodynamic effects. If the total charge of the colliding nuclei is larger than Zc = 173, the ground state of the combined quasimolecular system should dive into the negative-energy Dirac continuum. Investigation of the processes accompanying such collisions can gain insight into the detection of the diving phenomenon. R ... More
