This graduate text in quantum mechanics is based on the lectures of J. David Jackson at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1978-9 and 1987-88.
Grace in All Simplicity: Beauty, Truth, and Wonders on the Path to the Higgs Boson and New Laws of Nature, by Robert N. Cahn and Chris Quigg
This undergraduate/graduate text in particle physics, by Robert Cahn and Gerson Goldhaber, presents the subject from a historical perspective.
Designed to acquaint students of particle physics already familiar with SU(2) and SU(3) with techniques applicable to all simple Lie algebras, this text is especially suited to the study of grand unification theories.

Search for Cosmic Parity Violation
The four-point correlation of galaxies can reveal parity violation
generated at the beginning of the Universe. Our first analysis of data
from BOSS is
intruiging: arXiv 2206:03625
This was the culmination of work that began with an investigation
of isotropic n-point functions and their
We realized that some isotropic four-point functions were
parity-odd and proposed a search in large-scale structure for parity
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
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.
