Absolute Decay Rate from K<sub>2</sub><sup>0</sup>→π<sup>+</sup> + π<sup>-</sup> + π<sup>0</sup> and the barDELTA I over→bar = 1/2 Rule

Description: In this letter the author describes a measurement of the absolute decay rate {Gamma}{sub 2}({+-}0) {approx_equal} {Gamma}(K{sub 2}{sup 0} {yields} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup 0}). The result is based on 16 events of the type {pi}{sup -} p {yields} {Lambda}K{sup 0} followed by {Lambda} {yields} p{pi}{sup -} and K{sub 2}{sup 0} {yields} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup 0}, and 2608 double-vec events {pi}{sup -} p {yields} {Lambda}K{sup 0} with {Lambda} {yields} p{pi}{sup -} and K{sub 1}{sup 0} {yields} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}.

PERFORMANCE OF HNPF PROTOTYPE FREE-SURFACE SODIUM PUMP

Description: A free-surface centrifugal pump, incorporating a hydraulic bearing running in sodium, was operated at the conditions required for service in the Hallam Power Reactor. After difficulties arising from inadequate shaft clearances were alleviated, the pump performed properly at a flow rate of 7200 gpm of 945 gas-cooled F sodium at 150-ft head. Results Hallam plant.

Exploring the Weak Phase Gamma in B+- -&gt; pi K Decays

Description: Measurements of the rates for the hadronic decays B{sup {+-}} {r_arrow} {pi}K along with the CP-averaged B{sup {+-}} {r_arrow} {pi}{sup {+-}} {pi}{sup 0} branching ratio can be used to bound and extract the weak phase {gamma} = arg(V{sub ub}*). Using preliminary CLEO data, we obtain the bounds {vert_bar}{gamma}{vert_bar} &gt; 93{degree} at 1 {sigma}, and {vert_bar}{gamma}{vert_bar} &gt; 71{degree} at 90% confidence level.

Determination of Supersymmetric Particle Masses and Attributes with Genetic Divisors

Description: Arithmetic conditions relating particle masses can be defined on the basis of (1) the supersymmetric conservation of congruence and (2) the observed characteristics of particle reactions and stabilities. Stated in the form of common divisors, these relations can be interpreted as expressions of genetic elements that represent specific particle characteristics. In order to illustrate this concept, it is shown that the pion triplet ({pi}{sup {+-}}, {pi}{sup 0}) can be associated with the existence of a greatest common divisor d{sub 0{+-}} in a way that can account for both the highly similar physical properties of these particles and the observed {pi}{sup {+-}}/{pi}{sup 0} mass splitting. These results support the conclusion that a corresponding statement holds generally for all particle multiplets. Classification of the respective physical states is achieved by assignment of the common divisors to residue classes in a finite field F{sub P{sub {alpha}}} and the existence of the multiplicative group of units F{sub P{sub {alpha}}} enables the corresponding mass parameters to be associated with a rich subgroup structure. The existence of inverse states in F{sub P{sub {alpha}}} allows relationships connecting particle mass values to be conveniently expressed in a form in which the genetic divisor structure is prominent. An example is given in which the masses of two neutral mesons (K{degree} {r_arrow} {pi}{degree}) are related to the properties of the electron (e), a charged lepton. Physically, since this relationship reflects the cascade decay K{degree} {r_arrow} {pi}{degree} + {pi}{degree}/{pi}{degree} {r_arrow} e{sup +} + e{sup {minus}}, in which a neutral kaon is converted into four charged leptons, it enables the genetic divisor concept, through the intrinsic algebraic structure of the field, to provide a theoretical basis for the conservation of both electric charge and lepton number. It is further shown that the fundamental source of supersymmetry can be expressed in terms of ...

Search for Second-Class Currents in tau- -> omega.pi-.nu_tau

Description: We report an analysis of {tau}{sup -} decaying into {omega}{pi}{sup -} {nu}{sub {tau}} with {omega} {yields} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup 0} using a data sample containing nearly 320 million {tau} pairs collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II B-Factory. We find no evidence for second-class currents and we set an upper limit of 0.69% at 90% confidence level for the fraction of second-class currents in this decay mode.

Photoproduction of hybrid mesons

Description: In this contribution the author discusses prospects for photoproducing hybrid mesons at CEBAF, based on recent model results and experimental indications of possible hybrids. One excellent opportunity appears to be a search for I = 1, J{sup PC} = 2{sup +{minus}} ``b{sub 2}{sup o}`` hybrids in (a{sub 2}{pi}){sup o} through diffraction photoproduction. Other notable possibilities accessible through {pi}{sup +}; {pi}{sub J}{sup +}(1770) in f{sub 2}{pi}{sup +} and (b{sub 1}{pi}){sup +}; {pi}{sup +}(1800) in f{sub 0}{pi}{sup +}, f{sub 2}{pi}{sup =}, {rho}{sup +}{omega} and ({rho}{pi}){sup +}; a{sub 1} in f{sub 1}{pi}{sup +} and f{sub 2}{pi}{sup +}; and {omega} in ({rho}{pi}){sup o}, {omega}{eta} and K{sub 1}K.

Excitations of the nucleon with dynamical fermions

Description: We measure the spectrum of low-lying nucleon resonances using Bayesian fitting methods. We compare the masses obtained in the quenched approximation to those obtained with two flavours of dynamical fermions at a matched lattice spacing. At the pion masses employed in our simulations, we find that the mass of the first positive-parity nucleon excitation is always greater than that of the parity partner of the nucleon.

Future experiments with neutrino superbeams, beta-beams, and neutrino factories

Description: This report describes the goals of the next generations of accelerator-based neutrino experiments, and the various strategies that are being considered to achieve those goals. Because these next steps in the field are significantly different from the current or previous steps, novel techniques must be considered for both the detectors and the neutrino beams themselves. We consider not only conventional neutrino beams created by decays of pions, but also those which could be made by decays of beams of relativistic isotopes (so-called ''beta-beams'') and also by decays of beams of muons (neutrino factories).

Neutral Kaon Interferometry in Au+Au collisions at sqrt(s_NN) =200 GeV

Description: We present the first statistically meaningful results fromtwo-K0s interferometry in heavy-ion collisions. A model that takes theeffect of the strong interaction into account has been used to fit themeasured correlation function. The effects of single and coupled channelwere explored. At the mean transverse mass m_T = 1.07 GeV, we obtain thevalues R = 4.09 +- 0.46 (stat.) +- 0.31 (sys) fm and lambda = 0.92 +-0.23 (stat) +- 0.13 (sys), where R and lambda are the invariant radiusand chaoticity parameters respectively. The results are qualitativelyconsistent with m_T systematics established with pions in a scenariocharacterized by a strong collective flow.

Alignment of the Pixel and SCT Modules for the 2004 ATLAS Combined Test Beam

Description: A small set of final prototypes of the ATLAS Inner Detector silicon tracking system(Pixel Detector and SemiConductor Tracker), were used to take data during the 2004 Combined Test Beam. Data were collected from runs with beams of different flavour (electrons, pions, muons and photons) with a momentum range of 2 to 180 GeV/c. Four independent methods were used to align the silicon modules. The corrections obtained were validated using the known momenta of the beam particles and were shown to yield consistent results among the different alignment approaches. From the residual distributions, it is concluded that the precision attained in the alignmentof the silicon modules is of the order of 5 mm in their most precise coordinate.
