Center for Theoretical and Computational Physics
A new Theory Center paper proposes a new “locally smeared operator product expansion” (sOPE), in which non-local operators are decomposed in terms of a basis of smeared local operators. The sOPE formally connects nonperturbative matrix elements, which can be determined numerically using lattice field theory, to non-local operators in the continuum. These nonperturbative matrix elements do not suffer from power-divergent mixing on the lattice, which significantly complicates calculations of quantities such as the moments of parton distribution functions, provided the smearing scale is kept fixed in the continuum limit.

Air Bag Safety
Air bags increase the chances of surviving a vehicle crash, but, like many tools in our life, they have to be used correctly to obtain full benefits. There have been cases where people have sat too close to the air bag and have been killed or seriously injured by its explosive deployment. With the advent of side air bags, people who deliberately position themselves in the corner to sleep or from overcrowding are in danger. Passengers also should not sit back and place their feet on the air bag panel on the dashboard. Sitting with the feet up does not place one's body in the proper position for the full benefit from the seat belt/shoulder strap. Finally, elderly and children have specific "where to ride" conditions in some vehicles. One needs to read the owners manual to follow your particular vehicle’s requirement for where and how the elderly or children should be positioned.
When used correctly, seat belts and air bags do save lives.
