xv-psnewstyle patch for xv; and a
list of a few talks I have given.
This is a picture from
the DELPHI event display.
It shows a representation of the detector and the results of
an electron-positron collision at 161 GeV - sufficient energy to create
a W+ and W-.
Each W decays into a quark and antiquark
each of which produces a jet of particles.
The four jets are seen by the detector, shown in red, green, blue, and black.
LEP first achieved 161 GeV beams on the
morning of 9th July 1996 (I was there!).
DELPHI was lucky enough to be the first of the four the LEP experiments to
see such an event, making this the first-ever W+W- pair
produced in the uniquely clean conditions of
an e+e- collider.
Of course luck comes to those prepared, and it was no doubt due to the
excellent state of
Slow Controls (OK, the
whole online system)
that we detected the event and identified it so quickly.
And here's some stuff that I've had a hand in.
OK, that's the interesting stuff out of the way. Now on to some...

I have made local copies of some material that I have found useful but slow to
access from its original site. This material could be out of date, so it's best
to check with the original site. Depending on your location, you may also find
