View from UW, towards Mt. RainierProf. Berndt Mueller is currently co-directing an eight-week program at the Institute for Nuclear Theory at the University of Washington called "Quantifying the Properties of Hot QCD Matter." The program, which lasts from May 24th to July 16th, is, according to Prof. Mueller, "incredibly intense, with almost uninterrupted lectures and discussions between 9 am and 6 pm each day. The group attending the program is analyzing how matter behaves at the highest temperatures achievable in laboratory experiments, more than 2 trillion degrees Kelvin." Mueller is co-directing the program with Prof. Brian Cole, from Columbia, Prof. Ulrich Heinz from Ohio State, Prof. Peter Jacobs from Berkeley, and Prof. Jamie Nagle from the University of Colorado.
