Natural primordial mass density fluctuations are those for which the probability distribution, for the mass density fluctuations averaged over the horizon volume, is independent of time. This criterion determines the two-point correlation of the mass density fluctuations to have a Zeldovich power spectrum but allows for many types of higher correlations. If the connected higher correlations vanish the primordial fluctuations are Gaussian. In this case the probability distribution develops into a non-Gaussian one due to the non-linear time evolution. The nature of this non- Gaussian distribution and its effects on the large scale distribution of galaxies or clusters of galaxies and their large scale streaming velocities is explored. Next the possibility of natural primordial non-Gaussian fluctuations is examined. These can give rise to a very different large scale distribution of galaxies (or clusters of galaxies) than the Gaussian primordial fluctuations.https://authors.library.caltech.edu/records/pbkx1-rjy77Heavy quark symmetry

New symmetries of the strong interactions appear in heavy quark physics. They can be used to predict many properties of hadrons containing a single heavy quark. Some of these predictions are expected to play an important role in determining the values of elements of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix.https://authors.library.caltech.edu/records/ehj5e-gjt06CP Violation

The possibility of determining the unitarity triangle from measurements of CP conserving quantities is discussed. The predictions of the minimal standard model for CP violation in the Kaon system and B-bar decays are reviewed. Electric dipole moments of the neutron and the electron in models with an extended Higgs sector are discussed.https://authors.library.caltech.edu/records/p4a6z-7td34Dedication to Nathan Isgur

Nathan passed away in July after a lengthy illness. I am sure most of you are familiar
with his many contributions to heavy quark physics and it is certainly fitting that we
take a few minutes to honor him at the beginning of this meeting. Actually Nathan's
main physics interest was the strong interactions rather than heavy quark physics per
se. He was already very well known for work he did with Gabriel Karl and others on
the nonrelativistic quark model before the work that he did on heavy quark symmetry
and its applications. However, Nathan understood the limitations of the nonrelativistic
quark model, and was thrilled that the methods he helped develop allowed one to derive
systematically from the theory of the strong interactions many properties of hadrons that
contain a heavy quark.https://authors.library.caltech.edu/records/85paz-akw02Magnetic Moments of Dirac Neutrinos

The existence of a neutrino magnetic moment implies contributions to the neutrino mass via radiative corrections. We derive model-independent "naturalness" upper bounds on the magnetic moments of Dirac neutrinos, generated by physics above the electroweak scale. The neutrino mass receives a contribution from higher order operators, which are renormalized by operators responsible for the neutrino magnetic moment. This contribution can be calculated in a model independent way. In the absence of fine-tuning, we find that current neutrino mass limits imply that µv < 10^–14 Bohr magnetons. This bound is several orders of magnitude stronger than those obtained from solar and reactor neutrino data and astrophysical observations.https://authors.library.caltech.edu/records/hrpn4-fms36
