Herp, I get back to the west coast the next day. I'll see you guys at the second one.
"The detector" is not a machine for "measuring the amplitude". In fact, we have no way of "measuring the amplitude". The only tool we have "measures the ratios of the squares of the amplitudes", and that tool is this: "run the simulation a bunch of times and compute the ratio of detections at 1 to detections at 2".

Ah, just missed this announcement. I'll definitely make it to the next one though, now that I've signed up for the list (especially if they continue to be at HMC, my alma mater).
Question: Is "joining the googlegroup" synonymous with "signing up for the mailing list"?
