Who am I?
Bill Jameson, of Madison, Wisconsin, USA.
I am a high school science teacher, specializing in Physics.
The J/Psi particle, called the J-meson by Samuel C.C. Ting when discovered at Brookhaven National Laboratory. The similarity between J-meson and Jameson was too much to pass up, and I adopted the symbol J/ψ for my name.
(congratulations to any of my students who find this; now you know.)
