Triangle Nuclear Theory Colloquium

The Triangle Nuclear Theory Colloquium (TNT) is a DOE-funded Colloquium series jointly organized and held at Duke University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) and the North Carolina State University (NC-State).

The Colloquium is regularly attend by members of the High-Energy and Nuclear Theory groups of those three institutions. Speakers are asked to provide a fairly general introduction into their respective topics for the non-experts in the audience but then may go into as much detail concerning their current research as is suitable for a nuclear theory seminar. Talking time is 45 minutes plus 15 minutes for discussions.  Talks in "Physics 298" are in Room 298 (the faculty lounge)  of the Duke Physics building. Talks in "Raleigh N.C." are in Room 400 of Riddick Hall at NC State University.

Information on reimbursement of speakers can be found here.

Primordial nucleosynthesis (or BBN) is one of the three observational evidences for the Big¿Bang model. It is very special as it involves only a dozen main nuclear reactions and because, contrary to stellar models, within the standard BBN model, the...

We will first recall why the nucleon spin sructure is such a difficult and subtle
problem, not yet fully understood in QCD. We will then describe the quantum statistical approach to parton distributions and some recent results, in particular...
