Page 9 - Mr. Chairman, I wish to thank you and the committee for giving me the opportunity to appear before you...
Page 23 - There is increasing anticipation that the unification of the strong nuclear and the electroweak forces into one "grand unified" framework may be possible, thus reducing the apparent number of forces in nature to two. The ultimate goal is a "super-grand" unification that would bring all of the forces in nature into a single unified framework.
Page 288 - Act of 1964, title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and...
Page 288 - Order 1 1246 as amended, Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Section 402 of the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Act of 1974, the University of California is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
Page 30 - The FY 1990 Operating Expense request includes funding to support an increased level of technology R&D in support of the operating accelerators, primarily the SLC and the Tevatron. This R&D is crucial in identifying and providing for the modification and improvements needed to maintain the capabilities of the facilities at the cutting edge of the science. Finally, the FY 1990 Operating Expenses request includes funds to carry out advanced accelerator and detector R&D to develop advanced concepts...
Page 113 - Various possibilities for very high energy accelerators, including proton-proton colliders at tens of TeV per beam, were examined. The idea of the SSC began to take shape at the 1982 Summer Study on Elementary particle Physics and Future Facilities organized in Snowmass, Colorado, by the Division of Particles and Fields of the American Physical Society. The SSC initiative was followed up with workshops on accelerator and detector issues held during 1983 at Cornell University and at the Lawrence Berkeley...
Page 33 - ... completed or are underway to ensure an efficient transition to near-term site activities. Chief among these is the Department's selection of the Universities Research Association (URA) to build, manage, and operate the SSC laboratory. A contract was signed on January 18, 1989. Site geotechnical studies and 12 gathering of facts for the Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement will begin shortly.
Page 112 - ... robust as our own field of elementary particle physics develops a greater unity and coherence. Quantum chromodynamics, a theory of the strong interaction between quarks, finds applications and some of its most probing tests in nuclear physics. We share with our colleagues in atomic, molecular, and optical physics an interest in tests of quantum electrodynamics and measurements of the fundamental properties of the electron, muon, and other basic particles. In the last decade, a close working relationship...
Page 105 - We have learned that all matter in its diverse forms is assembled from a few basic building blocks called quarks and leptons. All known natural phenomena can be described in terms of a few fundamental forces acting among these basic constituents. These insights not only provide a framework for describing and understanding the world around us, but also elucidate the first instants after the creation of the universe. However, as our conception of matter has become better established, we have become...
Page 30 - ... includes funding to support longrange accelerator and detector R&D to develop the new concepts and technologies that are essential to the efficient operation, continued enhancement, and extension of accelerator and detector capabilities.
