## Phase structure of strongly interacting matter: proceedings of a summer school on theoretical physics, held at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, January 8-19, 1990This volume deals with strong interactions in nuclear and elementary particle physics, especially the phase structure of nuclei and particles at finite temperatures and densities. Areas covered include phase transitions in nuclei at low temperatures, nuclear reactions at relativistic energies, perturbative quantum chromodynamics, and chiral symmetry. In addition to the survey lectures, the volume also contains topical papers directly related to the theme. |
