High Energy Hadron Collisions on Complex Nuclei and the Propagation of Hadronic Systems Through Nuclear Matter

  • L. Van Hove
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (volume 4)


We shall first discuss briefly two experiments which suggest that the study of high energy hadron collisions on complex nuclei may well become an important source of information on multiparticle hadrodynamics, just as photoproduction reactions on nuclei play an essential role in the study of the vector mesons. We shall then analyse some of the theoretical problems connected with the propagation of an excited hadronic system through nuclear matter.
