## Physics with Charmonium -- A few recent highlights of BESIII    [PDF]

Johan Messchendorp for the BESIII Collaboration
Despite the successes of the standard model, the non-perturbative dynamics of the strong interaction are not fully understood yet. Charmonium spectroscopy serves as an ideal tool to shed light on the dynamics of the strong interaction such as quark confinement and the generation of hadron masses. The BESIII collaboration studies extensively the strong interaction and various aspects that could shed light on physics beyond the standard model via copious e$^+$e$^-$ collisions at the BESIII/BEPCII facility in Beijing, China, in the charmonium mass regime. I present a few of the recent results with the emphasis on charmonium spectroscopy and decay studies using 106$\times10^6$ $\psi(3686)$ events.
