Abstract: The use of hadron beams in radiotherapy is rapidly increasing as they present numerous advantages in treating deep-seated tumors. The purpose of this TFG is to give an overview of the physics behind radiotherapeutic hadron beams, especially for 1H+ and 12C6+ ions. This study reviews the basic aspects of the physics of hadron therapy, including slowing down processes, hadron interaction mechanisms and hadron depth-dose curves, through analytical calculations
