    Partially Strong WW Scattering

    Full text link
    What if only a light Higgs boson is discovered at the CERN LHC? Conventional wisdom tells us that the scattering of longitudinal weak gauge bosons would not grow strong at high energies. We show that this is not always true. In some composite models, two-Higgs-doublet models, or even supersymmetric models, the presence of a light Higgs boson does not guarantee the complete unitarization of the WWWW scattering. After the partial unitarization by the light Higgs boson, the WWWW scattering becomes strongly interacting until it hits one or more heavier Higgs bosons or other strong dynamics. We analyze how the LHC experiments can reveal this interesting possibility of partially strong WWWW scattering.Comment: 4 pages, 3 figures; updated reference information and added a referenc

    A Putative Inventor’s Remedies to Correct Inventorship on a Patent

    Get PDF
    Inventorship is a required component of patents issued in the United States, and the penalty for filing a patent with incorrect inventorship is harsh: possible invalidation of the entire patent. This iBrief explores the background on inventorship in the United States patent system, and various remedies such as 35 U.S.C. §116, 35 U.S.C. §256, and interference proceedings in correcting errors in inventorship. This iBrief will then discuss the usefulness of these various remedies to a putative inventor who was left off the inventorship of a patent

    The “Commercial Offer for Sale” Standard After Minnesota Mining v. Chemque

    Get PDF
    The Supreme Court established a two-part test for determining when an invention is on sale under 35 U.S.C. §102(b) in Pfaff v. Wells Electronics, Inc. For the on-sale bar to be triggered, the invention must be ready for patenting and subject of a commercial offer for sale. In Minnesota Mining & Manufacturing v. Chemque, Inc., the Federal Circuit expounded on what constitutes a commercial offer for sale. This iBrief explores what is considered a commercial offer for sale

    Post-Racial Ideology and Implicit Racial Bias

    This study assesses college students from the University of New Hampshire (UNH) and their attitudes and opinions toward people of color, specifically looking at racial/ethnic identity and campus social climate. With 362 respondents from the University of New Hampshire who answered our online survey, it looked at the participants’ post-racial ideologies and the participant’s racial/ethnic identity. This study finds that there is a correlation between racial identity and post-racial beliefs. The study found that 82 percent of the student respondents did not believe that we, as a society, lived in a post-racial America. It was also discovered that the student respondents who did believe we live in a post-racial society (eighteen percent) were almost primarily White participants. The research also shows that in comparison to students of color, White students are more likely to believe that there is little to no racial prejudice or discrimination on UNH’s campus. While this data gives important insight into the racial attitudes at UNH, having a more diverse demographic and a larger sample size would improve the research
