Speaker:   Mike Snow (Indiana)

Title:     Neutron-Antineutron Oscillations: Can the Current Experimental Limits be Improved?

Abstract: A discovery of neutron-antineutron oscillations, which requires a violation of baryon number by 2 units, would constitute a discovery of fundamental importance. I will review the reasoning which leads us to believe that baryon number is probably not conserved, briefly outline the different physics involved in neutron-antineutron oscillations and deltaB=1 processes such as proton decay, and describe possible experimental approaches using underground detectors,cold neutron beams, and ultracold neutrons.

Stimulants available 15 minutes before the talk. Note the time change since the previous posting.
