Physics & Astronomy Colloquium
3:30 PM, Friday, Nov 21, 2014
Room 155, Chem-Phys Building
Dr. Michael Eides
University of Kentucky
I will discuss physics of exotic muonium and positronium atoms, high precision quantum electrodynamic calculations of energy levels, and determination of the electron-muon mass ratio. I'll introduce the proton radius puzzle, discuss briefly the experimental data on muonic hydrogen, deuterium, and helium, and explain the status of the respective theory.
Muonium, Positronium, Proton Radius, and all that
Refreshments will be served in CP 179 at 3:15 PM
