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.
We get to know another of our new collaborating institutions in the August
2017 edition of the STAR Newsletter, and hear about programatic

years of seeing particles in the STAR TPC, as well as a successful Summer
Sunday of public outreach.
Congratulations to Dr. Kevin Adkins on successfully defended his Ph.D.
thesis at University of Kentucky his thesis title is: "Studying Transverse
Momentum Dependent Distributions in Polarized Proton Collisions via
Azimuthal Single Spin Asymmetries of Charged Pions in Jets"
Congratulations to Chris Flores on successfully defended his PhD thesis at
UC Davis. His thesis title is: "A Systematic, Large Phase Space Study of
Pion, Kaon, and Proton Production in Au+Au Heavy-Ion Collisions from the
RHIC Beam Energy Scan Program at STAR"
Congratulations to Kunsu Oh who successfully defended his PhD thesis at
Pusan in May, 2017. His thesis title is: "Charm and Bottom Hadron
Production via Semi-leptonic Decay Channel in Relativistic Heavy Ion
We get to know one of our new collaborating institutions in the June 2017
edition of the STAR Newsletter, and are called to volunteer for the
annual Summer Sunday at BNL. We also hear from our spokesperson about
Collaboration topics, and our S&C Leader on computing efforts. The recent
