Abstract: Studying and correcting for helicity-correlated false asymmetries in the CREx experiment at Jefferson Lab

My research this summer will be the beginning of my work for my honors thesis in physics with Dr. David Armstrong. Specifically, I will be working on data collection and analysis for the CREx and the closely related PREx experiment at Jefferson Lab in Newport News. The goal of CREx will be to determine the size […]

Tracking Field-Space Perturbations through Cosmic Inflation: Final Update

deltaR2 graph

Since my last post, I have found regions of significant movement for the CMB observable values for varying values of a.  Graphs of these are posted below. These graphs are only shown in pieces due to the time required to run the interpolation function of V over large ranges of a.  Instead of wasting actual […]

Tracking Field-Space Perturbations through Cosmic Inflation: Update 2

Screenshot 2016-07-05 16.16.55

Since my last post, I have started the numerical analysis of my work, using the program Mathematica.  This is because my work has reached integrals and interpolations which are impossible to do analytically.  This is to say that there are no longer functions which are equal to the integral of the functions I have, in […]
