First workshop on grand unification : New England Center, University of New Hampshire, April 10-12, 1980 by Paul H Frampton( Book )

13 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This workshop held at the New England Center provided a timely opportunity for over 100 participants to gather in a unique environment and discuss the present status of the unification of strong and electroweak forces. One reason for the timeliness was perhaps that experiments of the seventies had already lent confirmation to the separate theories of strong and of electroweak forces, so that for the eighties it now seems especially compelling to attempt the grand unification of these two forces. Also, the planned experiments to search for proton decay and the new experiments which are suggestive, though not yet conclusive, of non-zero neutrino rest masses add further stimulus to the theory. Thus, the workshop provided an ideal forum for exchange of ideas amongst active physicists. The presentations at the workshop covered the present status of both theory and experiment with a strong interplay. Also, there were presentations from the discipline of astrophysics which is becoming very intertwined with that of high-energy physics especially when in the latter one is addressing energies and temperatures that were extant only in the first nanosecond of the universe. On experiment, we heard a comprehensive coverage of the four United States proton decay experiments. The Brookhaven-Irvine-Michigan experiment in the Morton Salt Mine at Fairport Harbor, Ohio was discussed by LARRY SULAK, while DAVID WINN talked on the Harvard-Purdue-Wisconsin effort in the Silver King Mine, Utah. MARVIN MARSHAK and RICHARD STEINBERG described respectively the Soudan Mine, Minnesot~ and the Homestake Mine, South Dakot~experiments
Third Workshop on Grand Unification, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, April 15-17, 1982 : [proceedings] by Paul H Frampton( Book )

11 editions published in 1982 in English and Italian and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This workshop held at the University of North Carolina was in the series which started with meetings in the University of New Hampshire (April 1980) and the University of Michigan (April 1981). More than one hundred participants congregated in the Carolina Inn in April 1982 to discuss the status of grand unified theories and their connection to experiment. The spring foliage of Chapel Hill provided a beautiful back-drop to this Third Workshop on Grand Unification. As mentioned in the first talk herein, these three workshops have heard of indications, respectively, of neutrino oscillations, proton decay and a magnetic monopole. Since all three experimental reports remain unconfirmed, grand unifiers must wait expectantly and patiently. These proceedings preserve faithfully the ordering of the workshop talks which followed the tradition of alternation between theory and experiment. Only our introduction will segregate them. The experimental presentations mainly concerned proton decay and massive neutrinos. Four U.S. proton decay experiments were reported: the Brookhaven Irvine-Michigan experiment in the Morton Salt Mine at Fairport Harbor, Ohio was described by WILLIAM KROPP, and ROBERT MORSE represented the Harvard-Purdue-Wisconsin group in the Silver King Mine, Utah. The Homestake Mine, South Dakota and Soudan Mine, Minnesota, experiments were reported respectively by RICHARD STEINBERG and DAVID AYRES, the latter providing also a survey of future U.S. experiments

A tour of the subatomic zoo : a guide to particle physics by Cindy Schwarz( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Tour of the Subatomic Zoo: A guide to particle physics is a brief and ambitious expedition into the remarkably simple ingredients of all the wonders of nature. With hardly a mathematical formula, Professor Cindy Schwarz clearly explains the language and much of the substance of elementary particle physics for the 99% of students who do not aspire to a career in physics. Views of matter from the atom to the quark are discussed in a form that an interested person with no physics background can easily understand. College and university courses can be developed around this book and it can be used alone or in conjunction with other material. Even college physics majors would enjoy reading this book as an introduction to particle physics. High-school, and even middle-school, teachers could also use this book to introduce this material to their students. It will also be beneficial for high-school teachers who have not been formally exposed to high-energy physics, have forgotten what they onceknew, or are no longer up to date with recent developments

Andrew Pickering interviews conducted for his book CONSTRUCTING QUARKS by Andrew Pickering( )

in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Consists of interviews with thirty-six particle physicists, conducted as background material for his book CONSTRUCTING QUARKS: A SOCIOLOGICAL HISTORY OF PARTICLE PHYSICS, published in 1984. Pickering sought to document the founding and growth of research traditions structured around the quark concept, therefore, almost all interviews focused upon the interviewee's overall research career rather than narrowly defined historical episodes. They cover the period from 1964 when the quark model was formulated to 1980 when quark theories had come to dominate research practice in high-energy physics. More specific topics include J/psi color models, Fairbank's fractional charges, and the Price magnetic monopoole. Participants include: Henry Abarbanel, Luis W. Alvarez, Barry Barish, A. O. Barut, John Bell, James Bjorken, Elliott D. Bloom, Gordon Feldman, Geoffrey Chew, Sidney Coleman, A. De Rujula, Sid Drell, John Ellis, P.G.O. Freund, Erwin Gabathuler, Mary Gaillard, H. Georgi, Gerson Goldhaber, Sheldon Glashow, Peter Higgs, Roman Jackiw, R. L. Jaffe, P. V. Langshoff, Ed Lofgren, Seymour Joseph Lindenbaum, Francis Eugene Low, Y. Nambu, Robert B. Palmer, and Hugh David Politzer, Charles Prescott, P. Buford Price, Chris Quigg, B. Richter, A. Salam, G. t'Hooft, and C. N. Yang
