  • Personal accounts of the discovery of massive neutral vector mesons (psi particles) are given by researchers S. Ting, G. Goldhaber, and B. Richter. The double-arm spectrometer and the Cherenkov effect are explained in a technical note, and the solenoidal magnetic detector is discussed in an explanatory note for nonspecialists. Reprints of three papers in Physical Review Letters which announced the discovery of the particles are given: Experimental observation of a heavy particle J, Discovery of a narrow resonance in e/sup +/e/sup -/ annihilation, and Discovery of a second narrow resonance in e/sup +/e/sup -/ annihilation. A discussion of subsequent developmentsmore » and scientific biographies of the three authors are also presented. 25 figures. (RWR)« less
  • An account of the first observation of thermonuclear neutrons from a hydrogen weapon, the George shot, is presented. A personal narrative by the researchers J. Allred and L. Rosen includes such topics as the formation of the experimental team, description of the experimental technique, testing the experimental apparatus, testing the effects of a blast, a description of the test area, and the observation of neutrons from fusion. Excerpts are presented from several chapters of the Scientific Director's report on the atomic weapons tests of 1951. Also included is a brief description of the basic design of the hydrogen bomb, amore » recounting of subsequent developments, and short scientific biographies of the researchers. 21 figures, 2 tables.

  • This personal computer hardware and software selection case history presents a rationale applicable to other geological organizations where timely, high-quality technical and aesthetically pleasing reports, and tight budget control are required. The implementation of personal computers has dramatically increased professional and support staff productivity and creativity, decreased costs, increased timeliness of publications, and facilitated project management. The hardware and software discussed in this paper are commercially available, low-cost, efficient, non-proprietary, and easily learned. Their adoption by other organizations can result in significant productivity and efficiency increases, and dramatically decreased costs.
  • Three computers designed to run interLISP-D implementation provide personal programming work stations for artificial intelligence. The Xerox 1100 family of programming work stations is designed to enhance the productivity of programmers working on these difficult problems. These machines are well-suited to the specialized demands of program writing in application areas such as expert systems, knowledge-based systems, and interactive graphics interfaces between operator and machine.
