Dear GAPS members,

The article for this week's journal club is "Improved Limit on Neutrinoless Double-Beta Decay in 130 Te with CUORE".

Link to article: https://journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevLett.124.122501<https://can01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fjournals.aps.org%2Fprl%2Fabstract%2F10.1103%2FPhysRevLett.124.122501&data=02%7C01%7C%7C5bed9e75de4a46a1924808d7da502fa9%7Cc20535109cb34679a2d38f442e03b587%7C1%7C0%7C637217910239808887&sdata=qfR9%2FGx%2FuB94Fu%2BLat9u4htHGSLAMUO4vZrIRz27%2FHk%3D&reserved=0>

The journal club will take place this Thursday at 3:30pm via BlueJeans: https://bluejeans.com/103368334<https://can01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fbluejeans.com%2F103368334&data=02%7C01%7C%7C5bed9e75de4a46a1924808d7da502fa9%7Cc20535109cb34679a2d38f442e03b587%7C1%7C0%7C637217910239818875&sdata=o2niq61VPK1Ves7HAEJmJNfZm6cdMeikgsDB54cf1Jo%3D&reserved=0>

Questions for the upcoming journal club are as follows:

1) What is 'leptogenesis'?

2) What what is meant by the Mahalanobis distance?

3) Define 'Survival Probability'?

4) How does the upper limit for the Majorana mass in this work compare to upper limits from other methods?

5) What could explain the excess of counts at 2480 keV in figure 4?

Please read the paper, think about the questions, and come with your own questions too!

Thanks,
GAPS

Dear GAPS members,

It was pointed out that the previous Journal Club meeting time of 2pm would overlap with weekly town hall meetings with the director.

The time has therefore been shifted to 3:30pm this Thursday instead.

Thanks,
GAPS Committee

Dear GAPS members,

We are pleased to announce the return of Journal Club, which will now be supported by the GAPS committee.

Journal Club is an opportunity to get together with your peers to discuss a recent publication, ask questions, and learn something new.

How it works:

Every week one participant chooses a publication to deliver a brief (5-10 min) summary presentation on. Prior to the meeting, the presenter sends out at least 5 questions about the paper to kick start discussion amongst the other participants. At the end of each meeting the presenter nominates someone to present at the next meeting.

When:

The first meeting will take place THIS THURSDAY at 2pm via BlueJeans (link posted below). The first presenter will be Dr. Matthew Williams. The paper he has chosen to present is titled:


"Improved Limit on Neutrinoless Double-Beta Decay in 130 Te with CUORE"
