Experimental nuclear and particle physicist. These days I'm teaching, but I've spent a lot of time on nucleon structure in fixed target electron scattering and neutrino oscillations using reactors and beam sources.

Been reading Zemansky & Dittman's book on thermodynamics recently. Quote: ``The concept of temperature is rich in interpretations and levels of abstraction.'' Nice.

simplify at the end as we have already used the relevant approximation.

revised Good Fiber Bundles and Differential Geometry references for Physicists
Title are often very similar so physicists often refer to books by their author's (or s') name(s). Accordingly those names should generally be attached to please everyone.
