  • The purpose of the conference was to: exchange information among those responsible for, or interested in, the development of new low-level waste disposal facilities; acquaint participants with past experiences of states and organizations in enfranchising the public in the siting of controversial facilities; and discuss various mechanisms and techniques for effectively involving the public in decision-making processes. The conference addressed four major topics: lessons from past experiences; mechanisms and techniques for public involvement, conflict resolution, and working constructively with the media. A series of presentations on each topic was followed by questions and discussion among presenters and conference participants. Severalmore » key points emerged as the conference proceeded.« less
  • A new interference mechanism, analogous to classic'' double-slit electron scattering, has been identified in low energy ion-atom collisions. This Coulomb path'' interference results from the existence of two trajectories, indistinguishable with respect to laboratory energy and emission angle, along which ejected autoionizing electrons may be scattered by the attractive Coulomb potential of the slowly receding spectator ion. We present a simple semi-classical model for this effect in which we account for the path dependence of the amplitude of the ejected electron following decay of the autoionizing state. Calculated model lineshapes are found to be in excellent agreement with strong angularmore » dependence of the interference structure observed in the He target 2s{sup 2} {sup 1}S autoionizing lineshape measured near 0{degree} following 10 keV He{sup +} + He collisions.« less
  • The UNEDF SciDAC collaboration of nuclear theorists, applied mathematicians, and computer scientists is developing a comprehensive description of nuclei and their reactions that delivers maximum predictive power with quantified uncertainties. This paper illustrates significant milestones accomplished by UNEDF through integration of the theoretical approaches, advanced numerical algorithms, and leadership class computational resources.
  • In recent years, the world has begun to develop an awareness of the environmental costs of economic expansion and development. The most widely recognized problems include depletion of the ozone layer, the effects of toxic chemicals on soils, groundwater, and wildlife, and the danger of global climate change through the accumulation of greenhouse'' gases in the atmosphere. In one area, that of ozone depletion, the nations of the world were able to quickly reach a consensus and take action to try to slow, if not stop, the depletion. In the area of global climate change, the ability to reach amore » consensus is less likely. This is because the production of greenhouse gases is intimately linked to the production of energy, and increases in energy production in the developing nations of the world will be needed if they are to develop their economies and the standard of living for their peoples. It is also highly unlikely that the nations of the developed world will be willing to lower their standard of living in order to allow that of less developed countries to be raised. In my opinion, this dilemma presents a formidable challenge and a great opportunity for both the technical community and the policy makers in the developed nations.« less
