Paper submitted on classical particle exchange

Dr. Jarrett Lancaster of JSNN, alumnus Colin McGuire, and Dr. Aaron Titus wrote a paper on classical particle exchange. A pre-print of the paper is available on arXiv. Colin began this project for Honors credit in the calculus-based physics course 2009-2010. Dr. Lancaster developed analytic solutions and investigated the “relativistic” regime. The paper is a testimony […]
