Investigation of the Properties of Nuclear Matter and Particle Structure at the Collider of Relativistic Nuclei and Polarized Protons
(Project STAR at RHIC)

Leaders:     R. Lednicky
Yu.A. Panebratsev

Participating Countries, Institutes and International organizations:
Armenia, Azerbaijan, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Kazakhstan, Russia, Slovak Republic, USA.

Scientific Programme:
Investigation of the properties of nuclear matter with extremely high density and temperature, search for the signs of the quark deconfinement and possible phase transitions at the collisions of heavy nuclei at the energies of the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). Measurement of spin dependent structure functions of nucleons and nuclei using polarized RHIC beams.

Expected main results in 2011:
