In-class presentation will cover one of the published research papers in experimental particle physics (high energy physics). The list of papers is provided below. Presentations will take place on Mondays in the last month of classes. Each presentation will be approximately 20 minutes with typically two people presenting in each class. Overhead slide projector or computer projector could be used for the presentation. In addition, a one-page outline of the presentation is due the last day of classes before the Spring break.

Access to PROLA database is provided through the subscription of the Johns Hopkins University. Let the instructor know if you have problems accessing the database. This page is available at
