Notes on adding to HEPNames
Your name should provide a unique and exhaustive (1 to 1) link to
all your papers in the HEP literature database (see our
Author searching discussion).
This can usually be accomplished by including your middle initial,
but it's best to include as much information as possible, e.g.
NAME = Churchill, Winston S.;
You should also ensure that all your papers in HEP have your name
written correctly (please contact
if any of your papers in HEP need to be modified).
This should be written as it is for your records in HEP (e.g. St.
Petersburg, INP). This enables us to cross link between
HEPNames and the
You are allowed to have more than one affiliation
if you wish. If you don't have enough boxes, just include a
note in the comments section, and we will sort it out.
You may have more than one email address if you wish, but it's
probably more convenient to to just have the one and set up
forwarding if you visit somewhere else.
The best place for detailed information about yourself (phone and
fax numbers, research interests, etc) is your web page. Even a very
simple web page is incredibly useful to someone wanting to find out
more about you. However, as a substitute, you might want to put your
group or department's web page.

case, D.R.T. Jones.

If you have left physics, this should be the sort of

ACTIVE: currently working in HEP
