Center for Theoretical and Computational Physics
In a new paper <arXiv:1505.01803> the strange and electromagnetic form factors of the nucleon are computed at a pion mass of 317 MeV. Using a novel numerical methodology (hierarchical probing), developed using SciDAC support, high precision results are obtained for the contributions from quark disconnected diagrams. The methodologies employed in this calculation are expected to provide the best determinations of nucleon form factors physical quark (pion) masses, once the suitable gauge configuration ensembles currently under development become available.

JLab Construction Zone Safety Reminders
Unless you are properly trained, have the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including a contrasting vest, and have a purpose to be there, you should not enter any construction zone. And yes, JLab employees have been observed taking short cuts through these zones – endangering themselves and work progress in the process. Stay out of JLab Construction Zones; don't become an injury statistic.
