## 23rd Annual Midwest Theory Get-Together 2010

## Theory Group

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.)
