  • Our charged particle simulation models a relativistic electron beam for which the field solution is local and thus requires no grid. We have implemented the simulation on a CRAY and on two parallel machines, a nCUBE 2 and Connection Machine. We present implementation details and contrast the approaches necessary for the three architectures. On the parallel machines a dynamic load-balancing problem arises because the beam grows uniformly in one dimension from a few hundred to hundreds of thousands of particles as the simulation progresses. We discuss a folded Gray-code mapping of the processors to the length scale of the simulationmore » that expands (or shrinks) as the beam changes length so as to minimize inter-processor communication. This improves the efficiency of the nCUBE version of the simulation which runs at 10x the speed of the vectorized CRAY version. 7 refs., 4 figs., 1 tab.« less
  • The 238 group LAW library is a new multigroup library based on ENDF/B-V data. It contains data for 302 materials and will be distributed by the Radiation Shielding Information Center, located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. It was generated for use in neutronics calculations required in radioactive waste analyses, though it has equal utility in any study requiring multigroup neutron cross sections. 16 refs., 3 tabs.
  • We present experimental measurements of branching fraction and longitudinal polarization fraction in charmless hadronic B decays into vector, axial vector and tensor final states with the final dataset of BABAR. Measurements of such kind of decays are a powerful tool both to test the Standard Model and search possible sources of new physics. In this document we present a short review of the last experimental results at BABAR concerning charmless quasi two-body decays in final states containing particles with spin 1 or spin 2 and different parities. This kind of decays has received considerable theoretical interest in the last fewmore » years and this particular attention has led to interesting experimental results at the current b-factories. In fact, the study of longitudinal polarization fraction f{sub L} in charmless B decays to vector vector (VV), vector axial-vector (VA) and axial-vector axial-vector (AA) mesons provides information on the underlying helicity structure of the decay mechanism. Naive helicity conservation arguments predict a dominant longitudinal polarization fraction f{sub L} {approx} 1 for both tree and penguin dominated decays and this pattern seems to be confirmed by tree-dominated B {yields} {rho}{rho} and B{sup +} {yields} {Omega}{rho}{sup +} decays. Other penguin dominated decays, instead, show a different behavior: the measured value of f{sub L} {approx} 0.5 in B {yields} {phi}K* decays is in contrast with naive Standard Model (SM) calculations. Several solutions have been proposed such as the introduction of non-factorizable terms and penguin-annihilation amplitudes, while other explanations invoke new physics. New modes have been investigated to shed more light on the problem.« less
