    • An Examination of Active Galactic Nuclei in Galaxy Clusters 

      Spencer, Laura (Kalamazoo, Mich. : Kalamazoo College., 2006-01-01)
      Cosmology is reviewed and Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN), the subject of the research, are introduced. A study of AGN is done using data from SDSS and a cluster Catalog. The focus is on AGN identified by their emission ...
    • Plasma Simulation and Transport at the Magnetospheric Boundary 

      McNabb, Robert (2007)
      Plasma and magnetospheric physics are reviewed, and the KelvinHelmholtz Instability (KHI), the focus of the research, is introduced. Using the results or KHI and magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulations combined with ...
    • A Search for the Standard Model Higgs Boson in pp → ZH → μ+μ− b b at √s = 1.96 TeV 

      DeWilde, Burton (Kalamazoo, Mich. : Kalamazoo College., 2006-01-01)
      The theory and experiment associated with the Standard Model Higgs boson is reviewed. A search is underway at Fermilab’s Tevatron accelerator for Higgs production in the pp → ZH → μ+μ−bb channel at 1.96 TeV. This study ...
    • A Study of the Existence of Massive Neutrinos and Their Interactions 

      Williams, R. Seton (2002)
      This paper will begin by describing the early neutrino experiments conducted primarily by Fredrick Reines and Clyde Cowan, also known as "Project Poltergeist." Next I will introduce neutrino theory and its vocabulary ...
    • Two Improvements to the Canadian Penning Trap System 

      Letcher, Jeffrey J. (2003)
      The Canadian Penning Trap (CPT) is a high precision mass spectrometer operating on-line at the Argonne Tandem Linac System (ATLAS). As part of a project to modify and improve the CPT system, a quadrupole deflector was ...
