The low-noise operation of readout electronics in a liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) is critical to properly extract the distribution of ionization charge deposited on the wire planes of the TPC, especially for the induction planes. This paper describes the characteristics and mitigation of the observed noise in the MicroBooNE detector. The MicroBooNE's single-phase LArTPC comprises two induction planes and one collection sense wire plane with a total of 8256 wires. Read More

I review Stanley Mandelstam's many contributions to particle physics, quantum field theory and string theory covering the years 1955 through 1980. His more recent work will be reviewed by Nathan Berkovits. This is my contribution to the Memorial Volume for Stanley Mandelstam (World Scientific, 2017). Read More

We calculate some tree level scattering amplitudes for a generalization of the protostring, which is a novel string model implied by the simplest string bit models. These bit models produce a lightcone worldsheet which supports $s$ integer moded Grassmann fields. In the generalization we supplement this Grassmann worldsheet system with $d=24-s$ transverse coordinate worldsheet fields. Read More

We describe the design of a 20-liter test stand constructed to study fundamental properties of liquid argon (LAr). This system utilizes a simple, cost-effective gas argon (GAr) purification to achieve high purity, which is necessary to study electron transport properties in LAr. An electron drift stack with up to 25 cm length is constructed to study electron drift, diffusion, and attachment at various electric fields. Read More

The Physics Program for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) at the Fermilab Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF) is described. Read More

We report the measurement of longitudinal electron diffusion coefficients in liquid argon for electric fields between 100 and 2000 V/cm with a gold photocathode as a bright electron source. The measurement principle, apparatus, and data analysis are described. Our results, which are consistent with previous measurements in the region between 100 to 350 V/cm [1] , are systematically higher than the prediction of Atrazhev-Timoshkin[2], and represent the world's best measurement in the region between 350 to 2000 V/cm.

We study the behavior of a simple string bit model at finite temperature. We use thermal perturbation theory to analyze the high temperature regime. But at low temperatures we rely on the large $N$ limit of the dynamics, for which the exact energy spectrum is known. Read More

The second workshop to discuss the development of liquid argon time projection chambers (LArTPCs) in the United States was held at Fermilab on July 8-9, 2014. The workshop was organized under the auspices of the Coordinating Panel for Advanced Detectors, a body that was initiated by the American Physical Society Division of Particles and Fields. All presentations at the workshop were made in six topical plenary sessions: $i)$ Argon Purity and Cryogenics, $ii)$ TPC and High Voltage, $iii)$ Electronics, Data Acquisition and Triggering, $iv)$ Scintillation Light Detection, $v)$ Calibration and Test Beams, and $vi)$ Software.

A Short-Baseline Neutrino (SBN) physics program of three LAr-TPC detectors located along the Booster Neutrino Beam (BNB) at Fermilab is presented. This new SBN Program will deliver a rich and compelling physics opportunity, including the ability to resolve a class of experimental anomalies in neutrino physics and to perform the most sensitive search to date for sterile neutrinos at the eV mass-scale through both appearance and disappearance oscillation channels. Using data sets of 6. Read More

We develop superstring bit models, in which the lightcone transverse coordinates in D spacetime dimensions are replaced with d=D-2 double-valued "flavor" indices $x^k-> f_k=1,2$; $k=2,... Read More

In string bit models, the superstring emerges as a very long chain of "bits", in which s fermionic degrees of freedom contribute positively to the ground state energy in a way to exactly cancel the destabilizing negative contributions of d=s bosonic degrees of freedom. We propose that the physics of string formation be studied nonperturbatively in the class of string bit models in which s>d, so that a long chain is stable, in contrast to the marginally stable (s=d=8) superstring chain. We focus on the simplest of these models with s=1 and d=0, in which the string bits live in zero space dimensions. Read More

This white paper describes LAr1-ND and the compelling physics it brings first in Phase 1 and next towards the full LAr1 program. In addition, LAr1-ND serves as a key step in the development toward large-scale LArTPC detectors. Its development goals will encompass testing existing and possibly innovative designs for LBNE while at the same time providing a training ground for teams working towards LBNE combining timely neutrino physics with experience in detector development.

The Cryogenic Apparatus for Precision Tests of Argon Interactions with Neutrino (CAP- TAIN) program is designed to make measurements of scientific importance to long-baseline neutrino physics and physics topics that will be explored by large underground detectors. The CAPTAIN detector is a liquid argon TPC deployed in a portable and evacuable cryostat. Five tons of liquid argon are instrumented with a 2,000 channel liquid argon TPC and a photon detection system. Read More

A workshop was held at Fermilab on March 20-21, 2013 to discuss the development of liquid argon time projection chambers (LArTPC) in the United States. The workshop was organized under the auspices of the Coordinating Panel for Advanced Detectors, a body that was initiated by the American Physical Society Division of Particles and Fields. All presentations at the workshop were made in plenary sessions organized into seven topical categories: $i)$ Argon Purity, $ii)$ Cryogenics, $iii)$ TPC and High Voltage, $iv)$ Electronics, Data Acquisition and Triggering, $v)$ Scintillation Light Detection, $vi)$ Calibration and Test Beams, and $vii)$ Software.

The preponderance of matter over antimatter in the early Universe, the dynamics of the supernova bursts that produced the heavy elements necessary for life and whether protons eventually decay --- these mysteries at the forefront of particle physics and astrophysics are key to understanding the early evolution of our Universe, its current state and its eventual fate. The Long-Baseline Neutrino Experiment (LBNE) represents an extensively developed plan for a world-class experiment dedicated to addressing these questions. LBNE is conceived around three central components: (1) a new, high-intensity neutrino source generated from a megawatt-class proton accelerator at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, (2) a near neutrino detector just downstream of the source, and (3) a massive liquid argon time-projection chamber deployed as a far detector deep underground at the Sanford Underground Research Facility.

We propose boundary conditions on a two dimensional 6-vertex model, which is defined on the lightcone lattice for an open string worldsheet. We show that, in the continuum limit, the degrees of freedom of this 6-vertex model describe a target space coordinate compactified on a circle of radius R, which is related to the vertex weights. This conclusion had already been established for the case of a 6-vertex model on the worldsheet lattice for the propagator of a closed string. Read More

We continue our study of open string perturbation theory on the lightcone worldsheet lattice, which is an $M\times N$ rectangular grid. Here $M$ is the number of $P^+$ units and $N$ is the number of $ix^+$ units. We extend our previous analysis to the bosonic open string one planar loop self-energy. Read More

This note is a brief addendum to my article Nucl. Phys. B 864 (2012) 285, [arXiv: 1110. Read More

We develop new more powerful techniques, based on an almost closed form for the lattice worldsheet propagator, for analyzing planar open string worldsheets defined on a lightcone lattice. We show that results obtained in earlier work are easily reproduced with far more precision. In particular, consistency checks which required numerical analysis in the earlier work can now be confirmed exactly. Read More

We study the one loop correction to the closed bosonic string propagator, including the possibile presence of D-branes, by discretizing the light cone worldsheet on an M times N rectangular lattice, with M proportional to P^+ and N+1 proportional to ix^+. The integrals over the moduli then become sums which we evaluate numerically. The main purpose of this study is to assess the reliability of the worldsheet lattice as a regulator of the divergences in string perturbation theory. Read More

The evaluation of the determinant of the Laplacian defined on two dimensional regions of various shapes is an essential ingredient in calculating the scattering amplitudes of strings. In lightcone parameterization the regions are rectangular in shape with several slits of different length and location cut parallel to the $\tau$ axis of the rectangle. This paper offers a compendium of applications of the methods of Kac and McKean and Singer to the calculation of such worldsheet determinants. Read More

In early 2010, the Long-Baseline Neutrino Experiment (LBNE) science collaboration initiated a study to investigate the physics potential of the experiment with a broad set of different beam, near- and far-detector configurations. Nine initial topics were identified as scientific areas that motivate construction of a long-baseline neutrino experiment with a very large far detector. We summarize the scientific justification for each topic and the estimated performance for a set of far detector reference configurations. Read More

The purpose of this note is to extend the improved proof of the no-ghost theorem for the bosonic and Neveu-Schwarz dual resonance models, presented in my article Nuclear Physics B286 (1987) 61, to cover the Ramond fermion string. As in that paper, the improvement involves the identification of an efficient basis for string state space and a self-contained proof, based on the super-Virasoro algebra, of the linear independence of the basis elements. We use our results to calculate the BRST cohomology for this system. Read More

We study the properties of the leading Regge trajectory in open string theory including the open string planar one-loop corrections. With SU(N) Chan-Paton factors, the sum over planar open string multi-loop diagrams describes the 't Hooft limit N\to\infty. Our motivation is to improve the understanding of open string theory at finite \alpha' as a model of gauge theories. Read More

We improve and update the discussion, given some years ago by my collaborators and me, of infrared divergences and Bremsstrahlung in one-loop gluon scattering probabilities in lightcone gauge. In that work, we showed that adding soft and collinear gluon radiation, satisfying simple Lorentz invariant constraints, not only cancelled all IR divergences, but resulted in compact expressions for the consequent scattering probabilities. Here we impose less restrictive (albeit noncovariant) constraints on the unobserved radiation, which increases the high energy (s) fixed momentum transfer (t) behavior of the total probabilities from -ln^2s to ln s ln t, a behavior shared by the (IR divergent) elastic probabilities. Read More

The purpose of this article is to extend the lightcone worldsheet lattice description of string theory to include the Neveu-Schwarz model. We model each component of the fermionic worldsheet field by a critical Ising model. We show that a simple choice of boundary conditions for the Ising variables leads to the half integer modes required by the model. Read More

We extend the lightcone worldsheet lattice approach to string theory, proposed in 1977 by Giles and me, to allow for coincident D-branes. We find a convenient lattice representation of Dirichlet boundary conditions, which the open string coordinates transverse to the D-branes satisfy. We then represent the sum over all planar open string multi-loop diagrams by introducing an Ising spin system on the worldsheet lattice to keep track of the presence or absence of fluctuating boundaries. Read More

There is a subtle difference between the open string dynamics determined by the original dual resonance models and that determined by D-brane constructions within critical closed string theory. For instance, in contrast to the former, the latter have massless scalars in addition to the massless gluon shared by both. We introduce and explain the concept of nonabelian D-branes which illuminates this distinction. Read More

We report new measurements of inclusive pion production from frozen-spin HD for polarized photon beams covering the Delta(1232) resonance. These provide data simultaneously on both H and D with nearly complete angular distributions of the spin-difference cross sections entering the Gerasimov-Drell-Hearn (GDH) sum rule. Recent results from Mainz and Bonn exceed the GDH prediction for the proton by 22 microbarns, suggesting as yet unmeasured high-energy components. Read More

We pursue the possibility of using subcritical string theory in 4 space-time dimensions to establish a string dual for large N QCD. In particular we study the even G-parity sector of the 4 dimensional Neveu-Schwarz dual resonance model as the natural candidate for this string theory. Our point of view is that the open string dynamics given by this model will {\it determine} the appropriate subcritical closed string theory, a tree level background of which should describe the sum of planar multi-loop open string diagrams. Read More

We present a study of the worldsheets that describe the classical limit of various string scattering processes. Our main focus is on string scattering in AdS spacetime because of its relation via the AdS/CFT correspondence to gluon scattering in {\cal N}=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory. But we also consider analogous processes in flat Minkowski spacetime which we compare to the AdS case. Read More

This paper extends the study, initiated by Rozowsky and Thorn [1], of gauge fields in interaction with Dirac fields living on separated parallel 1-branes. In a lightcone description, replacing static point sources by 1-brane sources allows p^+ conservation to be maintained in their presence, which simplifies the lightcone quantization procedure. Here we calculate on-shell branion scattering amplitudes through 1 loop in lightcone gauge, and thereby resolve a puzzling ambiguity encountered in the off-shell calculations of [1]. Read More

I describe Field/String duality as applied to the response of gauge fields to separated quark and antiquark sources. This is a talk contributed to the conference Quark Confinement and the Hadron Spectrum VII, Ponta Delgada, Azores, 2-7 September 2006. Read More

The equivalence of quantum field theory and string theory as exemplified by the AdS/CFT correspondence is explored from the point of view of lightcone quantization. On the string side we discuss the lightcone version of the static string connecting a heavy external quark source to a heavy external antiquark source, together with small oscillations about the static string configuration. On the field theory side we analyze the weak/strong coupling transition in a ladder diagram model of the quark antiquark system, also from the point of view of the lightcone. Read More

The gluonic field created by a static quark anti-quark pair is described via the AdS/CFT correspondence by a string connecting the pair which is located on the boundary of AdS. Thus the gluonic field in a strongly coupled large N CFT has a stringy spectrum of excitations. We trace the stability of these excitations to a combination of large N suppressions and energy conservation. Read More

This is the second of a pair of articles on scattering of glue by glue, in which we give the light-cone gauge calculation of the one-loop on-shell helicity conserving scattering amplitudes for gluon-gluon scattering (neglecting quark loops). The 1/p^+ factors in the gluon propagator are regulated by replacing p^+ integrals with discretized sums omitting the p^+=0 terms in each sum. We also employ a novel ultraviolet regulator that is convenient for the light-cone worldsheet description of planar Feynman diagrams. Read More

We give the light-cone gauge calculation of the one-loop on-shell scattering amplitudes for gluon-gluon scattering which violate helicity conservation. We regulate infrared divergences by discretizing the p^+ integrations, omitting the terms with p^+=0. Collinear divergences are absent diagram by diagram for the helicity non-conserving amplitudes. Read More

Loop calculations in light-cone gauge must confront many technical complexities. We offer here a compendium of detailed light-cone calculations in Yang-Mills theories (with no matter fields). We consistently regulate the p^+=0 singularities through discretization of the p^+ component of momentum. Read More

We show that the lightcone worldsheet formalism, constructed to represent the sum of the bare planar diagrams of scalar \phi^3 field theory, survives the renormalization procedure in space-time dimensions D not greater than 6. Specifically this means that all the counter-terms, necessary to produce a successful renormalized perturbation expansion to all orders, can be represented as local terms in the lightcone worldsheet action. Because the worldsheet regulator breaks Lorentz invariance, we find the need for two non-covariant counter-terms, in addition to the usual mass, coupling and wave function renormalization. Read More

This paper describes my talk given to the 27th Johns Hopkins Workshop: Symmetries and Mysteries of M Theory, G\"oteborg, Sweden, 24-26 August, 2003. After a brief introduction to the lightcone worldsheet formalism for summing the planar diagrams of field theory, I explain how the {\it uv} divergences of quantum field theory translate to the new language of string. It is shown through one loop that, at least for scalar cubic vertices, the counter-terms necessary for Poincar\'e invariance in space-time dimensions $D\leq 6$ are indeed local on the worldsheet. Read More

The worldsheet representation of the sum of the planar diagrams of scalar $\Phi^3$ field theory and ${\cal N}=0,1,2,4$ supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory is explained. This was a talk given to the Light Cone Workshop: Hadrons and Beyond, 5-9 August 2003, University of Durham. Read More

We identify the strong coupling fishnet diagram with a certain Ising spin configuration in the lightcone worldsheet description of planar Tr\Phi^3 field theory. Then, using a mean field formalism, we take the remaining planar diagrams into account in an average way. The fishnet spin configuration requires two mean fields \phi,\phi' where the fishnet diagram is the case \phi=1,\phi'=0. Read More

We present an improved version of our earlier work on summing the planar graphs in phi^3 field theory. The present treatment is also based on our world sheet formalism and the mean field approximation, but it makes use of no further approximations. We derive a set of equations between the expectation values of the world sheet fields, and we investigate them in certain limits. Read More

We extend the Bardakci-Thorn (BT) worldsheet formalism to supersymmetric non-abelian gauge theory. Our method covers the cases of N =1,2,4 extended supersymmetry. This task requires the introduction of spinor valued Grassmann variables on the worldsheet analogous to those of the supersymmetric formulation of superstring theory. Read More
