Research Summary

Takehiko  Saito(Ph.D.)

Comprehensive understanding of the interactions among microscopic particles that is essential to understand the building block of the matter. We study the hadronic interactions at heavy ion accelerator facilities in Germany and China in order to understand the hierarchy of the nuclear and hadronic matters.
