Katherine Chamberlain: A Snapshot of the Life
Geramita, Matthew
This working paper provides a summary of an investigation in the the life of Katherine Chamberlain, the first woman to earn a PhD in Physics from the University of Michigan. It was written as the conclusion of a research project by UM undergraduate Matthew Geramita in 2008.

Lectures on the symmetries and interactions of particle physics
Wells, James D.
We build up Lorentz invariant and gauge invariant interactions of quantum fields consistent with symmetries. After that we discuss observables and their precision tests. And we conclude with a short discussion on Higgs boson theory and its discovery.

Natural Units Conversions and Fundamental Constants
Wells, James D.
Conversions are listed between basis units of natural units system where hbar = c = 1. Important fundamental constants are given in various equivalent natural units based on GeV, seconds, and meters.

Rotationally invariant integrals of arbitrary dimensions
Wells, James D.
In this note integrals over spherical volumes with rotationally invariant densities
are computed. Exploiting the rotational invariance, and using identities in the integration
over Gaussian functions, the general n-dimensional integral is solved up to a one-dimensional integral over the radial coordinate. The volume of an n-sphere with unit radius is computed analytically in terms of the Γ(z) special function, and its scaling properties that depend on the number of dimensions are discussed. The geometric properties of n-cubes with volumes equal to that of their corresponding n-spheres are also derived. In particular, one finds that the length of the side of such an n-cube asymptotes to zero as n increases, whereas the longest straight line that can fit within the cube asymptotes to a constant value. Finally, integrals over power-law form factors are computed for finite and infinite radial extent.
