Twentieth anniversary of Argonne V18 Celebration, March 27, 2015
We will have a one-day celebration of the 20th anniversary of Argonne V18. The speakers will be Joseph Carlson, Kawtar Hafidi, Rocco Schiavilla, Ingo Sick, and Robert Wiringa. Click on the license plate for more information.
Theoretical research in Argonne's Physics Division addresses a broad range of problems involving the stucture and dynamics of hadrons and nuclei. There is a strong emphasis on comparison to data provided by experimental groups at Argonne and at other facilities around the world. A brief overview of our program is available here.
In more detail, the principal areas of research include those described below:
- Nuclear astrophysics
- Nuclear dynamics with sub-nucleonic degrees of freedom
- Nuclear forces and nuclear systems
- Heavy-ion reactions and nuclear structure
- Atomic theory and fundamental quantum mechanics
It's been a tough winter in Chicago, now ranking 3rd on the all-time list for greatest snowfall, with the most snow since the record seasons of 1977-78 and 1978-79. It snowed on 30 of the first 48 days in 2014. Here is the annual snowfall record since 1884, with a star denoting the snowfall total to date, and an arrow pointing to a possible final total if average snows are experienced for the remainder of the season. Second place is within reach. (It's also been damn cold.) .
