A source for undergraduate and graduate researchers in nuclear and particle physics, this book provides a comprehensive review of work performed at the Low Energy Antiproton Ring (LEAR) since its commissioning in 1983. It presents the main results obtained in antiprotonic atoms, low energy antiproton-nucleus interaction, low energy antiproton-proton scattering annihilation, and searches for nucleon-antinucleon bound states. The book also describes the experiments for the next phase of the LEAR operation, which will use the higher fluxes delivered by the Antiproton Collector. In addition, it reports on recent technical developments for the machine itself, and on new research ideas for low energy antiproton physics in the 90s. Other titles in this series, related in their focus of study, include "Nuclear Physics: Recent Trends and Developments", "Instrumentation for Heavy Ion Nuclear Research" and "Collective Motion and Giant Resonances".
