Dear Colleagues:

We've attached a note from Hamish about the final report of the APS study.
As you see, there is very little time to send comments. We have also
posted an updated version of our working group report on our web site
We still need to make corrections to formatting of tables and find missing
references. We would also like to
update Table 4 with current parameters from the experiments. Please send
us any updates during the next couple of days. We'll post a final version
(after adding a list of study participants and cleaning up page numbering
problems, etc.) next week.

Thanks very much for all of your work during the last year.

Best wishes,

Gabriela and Ed

Subject: APS report text ready

Dear Working Group Leaders,

The cross-cutting heart of the final report of
the APS neutrino study is now ready. Your writing committee has tried very hard
to make it understandable to decision makers at both the non-technical and
technical levels, to maximize its impact, and to ensure that it reflects
the consensus that has grown out of the analyses of the working groups and
the discussions at Snowmass. We have taken into consideration all of the
comments we received from you and from the Organizing Committee, for which we
are very grateful. We hope you will like the report.

You can download it from http://faculty.washington.edu/~rghr/APSstudy10_19.pdf
The file is about 4 Mb.

The text of the report is in essentially final form, although some work remains
to be done on layout and imagery. It will not be made public
until Oct. 25, when Stuart Freedman and Boris Kayser will brief the
funding agencies on our recommendations. We request that in the meantime
you post it on your working group websites, inviting your working group
members to comment on it if they wish. If significant changes are
necessary, they can still be made this week. Comments may be sent to

We are going to press this morning on a limited run to make paper copies for
distribution to agency people on the 25th. By Nov. 1 we plan to have the
document in final form for a more extensive run. Paper copies and electronic
copies will both be available.

Once our report is public, it will be posted in its entirety, including
all the working group reports, on the websites of our sponsoring APS
Divisions. Thus the Working Groups should have their reports in final form for
posting on Nov. 1. We have three now.

Thanks very much for your help.
