Cosmic Ray Project. Femi Osidipe, Drew Thomas, and Elizabeth Weber.
Search for lepton flavor non-conservation in Kaon decays. Ingrid Clay.
Cosmic Ray Project (draft). Femi Osidipe, Drew Thomas, and Elizabeth Weber. Since this is a group report of our work this summer, compilation and some final editing was done by jth. Sections on analyis of Aug 9 data was completed by her, and descriptions of extensions of overlap calculations after the end of Elizabeth Weber's work was added by jth.
Femi Osidipe This report on timing considerations and investigation of the possibility of using a wave form digitizer as a readout device can be found as separate pdf files (fosid_1.pdf through fosid_19.pdf) on http://www.phyast.pitt.edu/jth/reupsill/2001docs/femi. His presentation slides (the other fosid_*.pdf files) are also there.
Ingrid Clay, Search for the forbidden decay K to pi mu e. This is a very rough document, due to illness of Ms. Clay in the last week of the program. The persuasive power of the paper is in the Appendices, which are extensive but not in electronic format. They are available upon request.
Cliff Parker A compilation of ideas from web sites, giving the motivation for study of high energy cosmic rays
Cosmic Ray Project, Julie Breden. In this directory are:
Lungisa Mavundla. Ms. Mavlunda worked on physics education research topics. Her directory includes a critique of biotechnology inquiry-based kits being prepared at SIUE by a group of middle school teachers, and a discussion of which aspects of those kits might be used in her classes and those of her colleagues. Her directory also includes some notes on radioactivity and general relativity, the subjects she chose to learn about independently while here.
Michelle November. Ms. November's paper on lead abatement is in her directory. She did an experiment on X-ray attentuation (since it is the basis for the most popular lead paint detector: the XRF (X-Ray fluoresence device)), included some notes on exponential growth and decay, and some notes on effects of lead poisoning.
