2019 Keynote Address


Keynote Speaker (1)







Dr. Hiroshi Uechi

Faculty of Commerce

Osaka Gakuin University
Introduction

Hiroshi Uechi, Ph.D.  He obtained his doctoral degree in nuclear physics (theoretical nuclear physics) from Indiana University, USA, under the guidance of Professor Brian D. Serot who founded the nuclear field theory, quantum hadrodynamics (QHD) with Professor John D. Walecka. Currently, he is a professor at Osaka Gakuin University and has been working on nuclear many-body theory and nuclear astrophysics.

He has been investigating self-consistent QHD hadronic approximations in terms of Landau’s Fermi-liquid theory and density functional theory (DFT) while applying QHD nonlinear and chiral effective models to neutron star calculations. He is working on nonlinear mean-field and chiral mean-field method for nuclear matter, self-consistent approximation method beyond mean-field approximations.
