SPS Reading Club Meeting

When: Friday, October 07, 2011 at 5:15 pm
Where: DA 114
Sponsor: SPS

This semester, SPS will be starting a reading club where physics students gather together to discuss the latest physics research. The first Reading Club meeting is this Friday, October 7. The paper we will be reading is on the cosmic-ray electron and positron spectra measured by the Fermi Large Area Telescope. We will be discussing the implications of the paper’s findings as well as the technical aspects of the experimental methods. A pdf of the paper is attached (can also be downloaded here: http://arxiv.org/abs/1109.0521). Supplemental background information can be found here: http://fermi.gsfc.nasa.gov/. If you have any questions, feel free to email either Patrick Wong (wong.pa@husky.neu.edu) or Dan King (danking@ccs.neu.edu).
