Year & Semester
2009 Fall
Presentation Date
October 5, 2009

Dr. Tom Banks of the University of California, Berkeley will describe recent efforts by the MuCap Collaboration to precisely measure the rate of nuclear muon capture in hydrogen, and how the process of muon capture--which involves electromagnetism, the weak interaction, and the strong interaction--is a unique confluence of a diverse range of physics.
