Astroparticle Physics

Johannes Blümer, Guido Drexlin and Klaus Eitel (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology KIT)

Astroparticle physics is interdisciplinary by its nature; progress is made at the interfaces between astronomy, nuclear and particle physics, and cosmology. The school covers a wide range of topics, including cosmic rays, Dark Matter and Dark Energy, neutrino physics, gravitational waves, and contemporary cosmology. Emphasis is given to a didactic treatment by renowned experts, and to unveiling the deep physics connections between the different lines of research. The school language is English.
