  • This report is a summary of a workshop held in June 1977 at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to evaluate the progress of research in the field of neutron radiobiology. The participants reviewed the results of current research and identified unresolved questions and areas of uncertainty. They then defined areas in which additional research should be undertaken, and, finally, they reviewed ways in which results from current and projected research could be applied to inform and influence regulatory decisions.
  • Charmonium physics is uniquely possible in a tau charm factory. The expected increase in data samples is a factor 100-1000 over current experiments. The physics potential and opportunities are (1) In gluonium physics, search for a bound state of 2 or more gluons by careful spin parity analysis of states produced in radiative J/{Psi} decays. (2) In {Psi}{prime} decays, there are many charmonium measurements which currently are either poorly measured or non-existent. These include the two and three photon width of the {eta}{sub C} and J/{Psi}, the discovery of the {eta}{prime}{sub c}, the measurement of the hadronic decays of themore » {chi}{sub c} and the normalization of the p{bar p} decays of the charmonium states observed by E760. (3) Further progress in understanding the hadronic {Psi}{prime} decays require a large statistics sample to measure the pattern of hadronic decays. A careful comparison to the J/{Psi} hadronic decays should clarify this puzzle. The ultra high rate of the J/{Psi} decays permits the possibility of high statistics study of light quark mesons. It appears a tau charm factory could contribute many branching ratio measurements. Finally, the ultra high rates of the J/{Psi} and {Psi}{prime} decays permits a careful study of the detector acceptances which will be necessary to make further progress in tau and charm physics.« less
  • This summary is an attempt to overview the wealth of new results and ideas in quarkonium physics presented at the Seattle Workshop. The Workshop in Seattle has shown that the physics of heavy quarkonium continues to develop at a fast pace; moreover, we have every reason to believe that the next year, with RHIC turning on, will mark the beginning of the new exciting era in this field.
  • Results derived from analysis of passive solar space heating systems in the National Solar Data Network are presented. Results are presented which describe the performance of these solar energy systems relative to the facets of design, control, and occupant interactions which provide for good system performance. Performance of passive solar space heating systems is illustrated in terms of system energy savings and thermal comfort conditions.
