Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
A neutrino of the type associated with the tau particle.
- ‘Over time, the quantum waves that accompany the different flavors get out of step, and an electron neutrino seems to morph into a muon neutrino or a tau neutrino and back again.’
- ‘Neutrinos come in three varieties, each associated with an electron-like lepton: the electron neutrino, the muon neutrino and the tau neutrino.’
- ‘The leptons consist of the charged electron, muon and tau, together with three electronically neutral particles - the electron neutrino, muon neutrinos and tau neutrinos.’
- ‘Neutrinos theoretically exist in three ‘flavors’: electron neutrinos, muon neutrinos and the more recently discovered tau neutrinos.’
- ‘Opera researchers are concentrating their efforts on the oscillation between the muon and tau neutrino.’
We take a look at several popular, though confusing, punctuation marks.
