Sponsored by the Global Foundation, Inc., these proceedings are derived from the International Conference on Orbis Scientiae II. Topics covered include: gravitational mass, neutrino mass, particle masses, cosmological masses, susy masses, and big bang creation of mass.
The proceedings of a December 1997 conference. Twenty-six papers address gravitational mass, neutrino masses, particle masses, and progress on new and old ideas. Some sample topics are: anti-de Sitter black holes and their superpartners in 2 + 1 dimensions; numerical field theory on the continuum; quark mass hierarchy and flavor mixing; tests of CPT and Lorentz symmetry in Penning-trap experiments; gauge dyonic strings and their global limit; the mass of the Kuiper Belt; and nucleon stability and dark matter constrains on SUSY unification.
