Eighteen Arbitrary Parameters of the Standard Model in Your Everyday Life
I have written a semi-technical paper (appropriate for beginning
graduate students in physics), which has been published in
Reviews of Modern Physics, 68, 951
Semi-Simple Lie Algebras Book available
I have placed a postscript copy of my book
Semi-Simple Lie Algebras and their
Representations, published originally by Benjamin-Cummings in 1984, on this site. Since
the publisher has returned the rights to the book to me, you are invited to
take a copy
for yourself. If you'd like a much better copy, look for the Dover version.
Einstein, Your Cell Phone, and You
In 2000 I wrote a piece about the purported dangers of cell phones, which was published in the
San Francisco Chronicle.
I have worked with Dave Nygren and his team on the development of an x-ray imaging system, based on silicon strip
technology. This work grew out of detector development for the
Superconducting Super Collider: it is a real spin-off. I have
written a few short notes on related topics.
See, as well, our work on refractive x-ray lenses.
Vector Boson Fusion was developed by Sally Dawson and myself. Phys. Lett. 135, 196 (1984).
Using jets to tag VBF was proposed by S. Ellis, R. Kleiss, J. Stirling, and myself:Phys. Rev. D 35, 1626 (1987).
Azimuthal Dependence in Leptoproduction
The azimuthal distribution of the hadronic jet produced in leptoproduction reflects the underlying transverse momentum distribution of the quarks in the target hadron.
