The Workshop N* Physics and non-perturbative QeD was once held on the ecu ropean heart for Theoretical experiences and similar components (ECT*) in Trento, Italy, in the course of may well 18-29, 1998. earlier workshops of the sequence on N* Physics came about on the Florida country collage (1994), at CEBAF (1995), on the Institute for Nuclear idea in Seattle (1996) and on the George Washington collage (1997). The Workshop was once dedicated to a precis of contemporary experimental and the oretical study on N* phsyics and certain emphasis used to be given to the infor mation that photo-and electro-production of nucleon resonances gives you at the non-perturbative regime of Quantum Chromodynamics. the assumption was once to stimulate discussions between experimentalists and theoreticians that allows you to pursue the translation of the massive quantity of coming near near facts from a number of laboratories on the planet. It was once consequently made up our minds to have either experimental and theoretical lectures at the major subject matters, like ,among the others, unmarried and double pion creation, TJ-and K-meson construction, the GDH sum rule, the spin of the proton, and so forth. due to the weird two-week extension of the paintings store, the dispensed time for the lectures was once prolonged as much as one hour that allows you to enable the invited academics to offer a close presentation in their themes. Fi nally, a variety of brief contributions have been chosen to sharpen the dialogue approximately chosen items.
