2Physics Quote:
"Eckhard D. Falkenberg, who found evidence of an annual oscillation in the beta-decay rate of tritium, was either the first or one of the first to propose that some beta-decay rates may be variable. He suggested that the beta-decay process may be influenced by neutrinos, and attributed the annual variation to the varying Earth-Sun distance that leads to a corresponding variation in the flux of solar neutrinos as detected on Earth. Supporting evidence for the variability of beta-decay rates could be found in the results of an experiment carried out at the Brookhaven National Laboratory."
-- Peter A. Sturrock, Ephraim Fischbach, Jeffrey D. Scargle

Upcoming Physics Conferences

From today we start this feature on suggestion from some of our physicist friends. If anyone wishes to freely advertize Physics jobs or conferences in 2Physics, he/she is welcome to put an entry and a web-link following our 'comment' link that can be found at the bottom of any of our postings. From time to time we'll publish the list. Our today's list is for conferences only.

July 18-21: "Quantum reality, relativistic causality, and closing the epistemic circle: an international conference in honour of Abner Shimony" (Waterloo, Ontario, Canada)
July 20-21: "Teaching General Relativity" (Syracuse)
July 23-29: "Eleventh Marcel Grossmann Meeting on General Relativity" (Berlin)
Jul 31-Aug 4: "Cosmic Frontiers" (Durham, UK)
August 1-4: "1st international workshop on transmission of information and energy in nonlinear & complex systems " (Singapore)
August 6-11: "Intl congress on mathematical physics" (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
August 7-15: "Key Approaches to Dark Energy" (Barcelona, Spain)
August 24-26: "Quantum Gravity in Americas" (Pennstate)
August 25-29: "3rd Feynman festival" (College Park, Maryland, USA)
September 3-12: "International advanced summer school on modern mathematical physics: theoretical cosmology and observational status of modern cosmology" (Dubna, Russia)
September 7-9: "Maxwell 150 Years On" (Aberdeen, UK)
