Congratulations to Toshihiro Nonaka who successfully defended his PhD
thesis at University of Tsukuba. His thesis title is: "The 6th order
cumulant of net-proton distribution at 200GeV Au+Au collisions".
We remember STAR Collaborator Prof. Hongfang Chen, and look back on 2017 in
2017 edition of the STAR Newsletter. Also included are a brief recap of
the Analysis Meeting, including the Collaboration photo we took during the
event, and some fellow Collaborators in the headlines.
Congratulations to Dr. Daniel L. Olvitt, Jr on successfully defended his
PhD thesis at Temple University. His thesis title is: "Measurement of the
Longitudinal Double Spin Asymmetry for Dijet Production in Polarized
Proton+Proton Collisions at √s = 510 GeV at STAR".
Congratulations to Dr. Ting Lin on successfully defended his PhD thesis at
Indiana University. His thesis title is: "Longitudinal double-spin
asymmetries for di-jet production at intermediate pseudorapidity in
polarized pp collisions at √s = 200 GeV".
Congratulations to Dr. Xinjie Huang on successfully defended his PhD thesis
at Tsinghua University. His thesis title is: "Study of the Moun Telescope
Detector at RHIC and the Upsilon production in Au+Au collisions at 200GeV".
Congratulations to Dr. Jan Rusnak on successfully defended his PhD thesis
at the Nuclear Physics Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences. His
thesis title is: "Jet Reconstruction in Au+Au collisions at RHIC".
Interesting low pT di-leption physics from juniors Shuai Yang & Wangmei Zha
kick off the October 2017 edition of the STAR Newsletter. We also hear from our
Spokespersons and Computing Leadership on hardware and software activities,
about the Blind Analysis Committee & CME Focus Group, and also the 2nd
CBM-STAR workshop and the fall DNP meeting.
