Sudbury Neutrino Observatory
The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) is a second generation dedicated solar neutrino experiment which has extended the results of the Penn group with the Kamiokande II detector by measuring three reactions of solar neutrinos to fully resolve the solar neutrino problem.
Vector Bundles on Calabi-Yau Manifolds
Supersymmetric vacua of the heterotic string and M-theory are explored through the study of complex algebraic geometry. The figure is from a recent paper by Prof. Burt Ovrut and collaborators on the Kahler cone substructure associated with the SU(2) bundle for different Kahler moduli.
Jamming and the Glass Transition
Professor Andrea Liu's group studies the theory of jamming - the phenomenon wherein a system that normally flows much like a liquid (as with foams) become solid-like when subjected to shear stress.
