### Overview

Accelerator physics, experimental elementary particle spin physics, spin-gravity interaction, foundations of quantum mechanics.

### Research Focus

My research in the Soviet Union was mostly in accelerator beam and spin physics. At ITEP I worked on their 7 GeV proton synchrotron project and developed a theory of non-linear betatron oscillations, betatron resonances and synchro-betatron resonances. At the Yerevan Physics Institute I did most of the conceptual design of their 5 GeV electron synchrotron; made the first theoretical design of direct muon (g-2) measurement; and published papers on radiation damping decrements (with E.K. Tarasov of ITEP) and on spin resonances; and I also proposed a 100x100 GeV electron-positron collider, an idea not accepted at the time. During a year of parallel work at the Budker Institute I made the theoretical discovery of quantum depolarization with V.N. Baier.

After arriving in the West I helped develop at CERN the idea of ion “shaking,” with consequent doubling of the number of accumulated anti-protons, and in the United States worked on an alternative design for the proposed B-factory at Cornell; participated in measuring the magnetic dipole moment of the muon at BNL; did theoretical work on systematic errors for proposals to measure the electric dipole moment of the proton, electron and deuteron; and published on quantum and classical indeterminism.

In retirement, I began theoretical work in cosmology, while continuing to pursue my interests in systematic errors, spin coherence time, spin-gravity effects and other theoretical issues related to the next generation measurement of the muon (g-2) and the proposed measurement of the proton, electron and deuteron EDMs.
