Proceedings of The 3rd Workshop From Parity Violation to Hadronic Structure and more,,,


This book contains the proceedings of the third international workshop on From Parity Violation to Hadronic Structure and more ... which was held from May 16 to May 20, 2006, at the George Eliopoulos conference center on the Greek island of Milos. It is part of a series that started in Mainz in 2002 and was followed by a second workshop in Grenoble in 2004. While originally initiated by the extraction of the strangeness contribution to the electromagnetic form factors of the nucleon, the workshop series has continuously broadened the focus to the application of Parity Violation using hadronic probes and to Parity Violation experiments in atomic physics. Meanwhile there have been many exciting new proposals for using Parity Violation in other areas like in the search for new physics beyond the standard model or in exploring hadron structure. There are also close connections to the open question on the size of the two photon exchange amplitude. Fifty years after the 1956 proposal of Lee and Yang to test the hypothesis of violation of parity symmetry in the weak interaction, the many applications of parity violation in very different experiments are way beyond the scope of what Lee and Yang could have imagined. For the physics topics discussed during this workshop, the application of parity violation has become a standard work horse that allows to extract many physics topics in different experiments.
