Symposium in Memory of Harald Fritzsch


Harald Fritzsch has made outstanding contributions to the development of modern particle physics. He was a pioneer of QCD, the gauge theory of strong interactions, and contributed significantly to Grand Unified Theories and to the flavour physics of quarks and leptons.

The Arnold Sommerfeld Center is organizing a scientific Symposium in Honor of Harald Fritzsch and his lasting contributions to Theoretical Physics.
