The ANTARES Collaboration proposes to construct a large area water Cherenkov detector in the deep Mediterranean Sea, optimised for the detection of muons from high-energy astrophysical neutrinos. This paper presents the scientific motivation for building such a device, along with a review of the technical issues involved in its design and construction. The… (More)
The T2K experiment observes indications of ν(μ) → ν(e) appearance in data accumulated with 1.43×10(20) protons on target. Six events pass all selection criteria at the far detector. In a three-flavor neutrino oscillation scenario with |Δm(23)(2)| = 2.4×10(-3) eV(2), sin(2)2θ(23) = 1 and sin(2)2θ(13) = 0, the expected number of such events is 1.5±0.3(syst).… (More)
The ANTARES neutrino telescope is a large photomultiplier array designed to detect neutrino-induced upward-going muons by their Cherenkov radiation. Understanding the absorption and scattering of light in the deep Mediterranean is fundamental to optimising the design and performance of the detector. This paper presents measurements of blue and UV light… (More)

The energy resolution of the barrel part of the CMS Electromagnetic Calorimeter has been studied using electrons of 20 to 250 GeV in a test beam. The incident electron's energy was reconstructed by summing the energy measured in arrays of 3×3 or 5×5 channels. There was no significant amount of correlated noise observed within these arrays. For electrons… (More)
recommendations made at the Sea Grant workshops held last spring. The following is a summary of that meeting with recommendations to the Northern Shrimp Section. The Technical Committee (TC) met September 15-16 th to discuss the 2003 assessment and summer survey and the 2004 fishing season. There were a number of recommendations to improve the summer survey… (More)
We show that Ding's partial order on maximal rook placements on any Ferrers board has a symmetric chain decomposition and is EL-shellable. As a consequence the partial order is Peck, and we show that it has MM obius function values of 1; 0 or +1.
I am writing on behalf of the American Albacore Fishing Association (AAFA), a nonprofit corporation of over two dozen American commercial fishing vessels that participate in the troll/baitboat (" pole & troll ") North Pacific albacore fishery, 1 to submit comments in connection with the requirements of the reauthorization and 2006 Amendments to the… (More)
1. Estimate catch from all sources including landings and discards. Characterize the uncertainty in these sources of data. 2. Present survey data being considered and/or used in the assessment (e.g., regional indices of abundance, recruitment, state and other surveys, age-length data, etc.). Characterize uncertainty in these sources of data. 3. Estimate… (More)
