2006 APS-Physics April meeting in Dallas
In the HAPPEx-II experiment at the Jefferson Lab beams of electrons are
used to probe the inner workings of the proton. Paul Souder,
Syracuse University (I9.1 at the meeting, (email@example.com
and HAPPEx spokesperson Krishna Kumar of the University of
Massachusetts, Amherst (firstname.lastname@example.org
) will report on new
information about the role of the relatively rare strange quark in
contributing to the proton's electric and magnetic properties.
Meanwhile, the experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider
(RHIC), where not single protons but whole gold nuclei (with
hundreds of protons and neutrons) are shattered, showed last year
that the fireball resulting from the smashup behaved like a gigantic
liquid of quarks and gluons. Barbara Jacak of SUNY Stony Brook
(A1.2, email@example.com) will report on a new
assessment of the fluid dynamics and other properties of their quark
