Pion Absorption by Nuclei

  • Daniel S. Koltun
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 45)


The subject of these lectures has a history of experiments and theory of about thirty years. It is not the present purpose to review the subject in detail. There are by now a number of review articles on the subject1–3, and regular reports at two year intervals, at the International Conferences on High Energy Physics and Nuclear Structure (of which the most recent is by H.K. Wa1ter4), which have up-to-date information (see also Ref. 1a). The purpose here is to give an overall impression of what the subject is about, and how it stands.
