Warm Dense Matter Lecture SS2017

Summary

This lecture will give an overview on the special properties of Warm Dense Matter (WDM), which can be found, for example, in the deep interiors of planets, brown dwarfs and stars, and is also important for many laboratory applications (laser-matter interaction, material research, fusion research, etc.). Basic theoretical concepts and modern methods for creation and investigation of WDM in the laboratory will be discussed.
