Francqui International Chair 2013-2014 - Francis Halzen


Francis Halzen


Lecture series on Particle Astrophysics

Prof. Francis Halzen will give a series of lectures in the framework of the Class of Excellence. The lecture will discuss the multi-wavelength approach to particle astrophysics (gamma rays, neutrinos and cosmic rays) with emphasis on neutrinos. The approach will be to explain the science with back-of-the-envelope illustrations and reference the papers required for detailed calculations.
