Muonic and Hadronic Atoms

Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 15)

Abstract

In these five lectures I will try to give a more or less self-consistent picture of the majority of experiments done so far in the field of muonic and hadronic atoms. The purpose of these lectures is not to confront you with all available data, but rather to explain the ideas and data of selected experiments. A survey of the data existing so far can be found, for example, in review articles and conference contributions1–9). In contrast with many of these reviews here I have not tried to treat all atoms separately, but to search for similar features and treat them together. Theoretical considerations will only be taken into account if it is necessary for the understanding of the topics. A detailed discussion of the theory can be found elsewhere9–13). I have tried also to cover some very recent ideas and experimental results (presented at the Santa Fe Conference) and I apologize in advance if I have forgotten important contributions. Because of lack of time I was unable to treat the topics of very light exotic atoms µp, πp, Kp, pp) where interesting effects occur and of the observation of γ-rays after π and K absorption. References to these topics are given elsewhere14–20).
