8.811 Particle Physics II (MIT)
8.811, Particle Physics II, describes essential research in High Energy Physics. We derive the Standard Model (SM) first using a bottom up method based on Unitarity, in addition to the usual top down method using SU3xSU2xU1. We describe and analyze several classical experiments, which established the SM, as examples on how to design experiments. Further topics include heavy flavor physics, high-precision tests of the Standard Model, neutrino oscillations, searches for new phenomena (compositenes

1.5 Defining dyslexia

The ongoing debate about dyslexia is reflected in the different approaches that have been taken to formally define it. Clearly this impacts on how dyslexia is defined in practice. The next three sections summarise how definitions of dyslexia have changed as our knowledge has increased. In short, there have been three main approaches to defining dyslexia: definition by exclusion, discrepancy definitions and the identification of positive indicators.

10.10 Conclusions

Hargreaves, I., Lewis, J. and Speers, T. ‘Towards a better map: Science, the public and the media’, Economic and Social Research Council.

We now return to three questions central to our inquiry. First, what do we, as a public, need to know about climate change, MMR and genetic media research? Second, what have most of us learnt from media coverage about these issues? And third, to what extent does our study suggest a model of media and public understanding which

1.6.2 Riboflavin (vitamin B2)

Riboflavin or vitamin B2, which was originally known as vitamin G, is found in a wide variety of foods, including milk and dairy products. It is more stable to heat than some of the other B vitamins, but is destroyed by exposure to sunlight. Milk in a glass bottle exposed to sun, loses 10% of its riboflavin per hour. Riboflavin plays a crucial role in the metabolism of carbohydrates and proteins and is involved in many other metabolic reactions in the body.

8.851 Strong Interactions: Effective Field Theories of QCD (MIT)
This is a course in the construction and application of effective field theories, which are the modern tool of choice in making predictions based on the Standard Model. Concepts such as matching, renormalization, the operator product expansion, power counting, and running with the renormalization group will be discussed. Topics will be taken from factorization in hard processes relevant for the LHC, heavy quark decays and CP violation, chiral perturbation theory, non-relativistic bound states in
