I still have copies of the almost all the biennial editions of the Review of Particle Physics back to 1982, when it was called “Review of Particle Properties” and was 294 pages long. (I’m missing 1992.)

Today I got the 2006 edition. All 1232 pages of it.

The 1982 volume has a reproduction of the 1958 Table of Particle Properties on its back cover. And a long explanatory caption and an illustration, because the table only takes about half the page; it lists three leptons, four mesons, and eight baryons.

In the present edition, the first plot in the “Color figures” section at the end, Figure 10.1 (Postscript), shows our E158 result. Nice.


One thought on “Hernia

  1. “Four mesons masing, three leptons leaping,…” Seriously, though, I wish I were involved in something as cosmically meaningful.
