"The Novel World of Hadron Physics"
 
 Slideshow (PDF)
ABSTRACT:

I will survey a number of exciting new developments in hadron physics.

These include: new insights into the nature of the color-confi ning con finement quark potential in quantum chromodynamics; a novel application of supersymmetry to hadron physics; the relation between the parameter ΛMS which controls high-energy interactions of quarks to the mass of the proton; and the elimination of the renormalization scale ambiguity for perturbative QCD calculations.

I will also discuss several novel experimental tests of QCD which can be performed at JLab, including: hard exclusive and diff ractive reactions, flavor-dependent antishadowing of nuclear interactions; intrinsic strange- and charm-quark phenomena; the production of tetraquarks and other exotic hadronic states; and factorization-breaking lensing phenomena.

"String Theory, Our Real World, and Higgs bosons"
 
 Slideshow (PDF)
ABSTRACT:
String theory is exciting because it can address most or all of the questions we hope to understand about the physical world, about the quarks and leptons that make up our world, and the forces that act on quarks and electrons to form our world, cosmology, and much more. It’s nice that it provides a quantum theory of gravity too. I’ll explain why string theory is testable in basically the same ways as the rest of physics, why many people including string theorists are confused about that, and how string theory is already or soon being tested in several ways, including Higgs boson physics and LHC physics.
