Elements of a Relativistic Microscopic Theory of Hadronic Matter in Equilibrium and Non Equilibrium

  • Rudi Malfliet
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 205)


Nuclear matter is a prime example of a strongly interacting many-hadron system. The understanding of its properties like saturation and compressibility is a first necessary step towards the description of finite nuclei and their properties. A unified treatment of equilibrium and non-equilibrium phenomena in nuclear matter might lead to a consistent approach to study properties of static nuclei and the behaviour of colliding nuclei.
