Dr. Daniel Pitonyak, assistant professor of physics, co-authored an article with colleagues from Penn State, UCLA, New Mexico State, and Los Alamos National Lab that was published Jan. 14 in the Journal of High Energy Physics. The article, “Polarized hyperon production in single-inclusive electron-positron annihilation at next-to-leading order,” focused on their research on how particles called hyperons are formed from the energy released when an electron and positron travel close to the speed of light, collide, and then annihilate each other.
Dr. James Broussard, professor of history and director of the Center for Political History, was quoted in the recent New York Times article by Mihir Zaveri, Shutdowns Are ‘All Games of Chicken.” Broussard shared the history of federal government spending, noting “The executive department, especially the military, would make contracts and then Congress would have to find the money to pay for them or else default on them.”
