Abstract: 

The low-energy Compton scattering provides access to the nucleon polarizabilities – the structure constants which describe the polarization of the nucleon charge and magnetization densities induced by external electromagnetic fields. Polarizabilities are of interest to many branches of physics, ranging from precision atomic physics to astrophysics. This workshop will review the most recent developments in determination of the nucleon polarizabilities as well as in assessing their role in physical systems such as muonic atoms. An emphasis will be put on the experimental programs at HIGS, Jefferson Lab, MAMI, and MaxLab aimed to measure the proton and neutron polarizabilities.
