Results from the Survey on the Future of HEP

A survey was conducted on the future of High Energy Physics during the 2001 Snowmass Conference by the Young Physicists Panel. The web-based survey consisted of sections on demographics, balance and focus of the field, impact of globalization, outreach, building the field, future physics, and picking a plan. The survey format was multiple choice so that the results could be tabulated into ntuple format; space for comments for each section was also available. With over 1500 responses, the survey results represent the beliefs of physicists from a diverse range of career stages, backgrounds, and research areas. This talk will highlight the main trends in responses for each section of the survey, as well as revealing some of the more subtle correlations.

A former Dean of St. Paul's Cathedral in London, one Rev. Fisher, made the observation that "Events in the past may be roughly divided into those which probably never happened and those which do not matter." If the Gloomy Dean is correct, what is the historical significance of the 1995 discovery of the top quark? I will discuss what we do and don't know about top-quark physics, and describe what CDF is going to do about it during the Tevatron-collider run that is now underway.

A Departure from Prediction: Measurement of Electroweak Parameters at NuTeV
The NuTeV collaboration has extracted the electroweak parameter, sin2thw, from the measurement of the ratios of neutral current to charged current neutrino and antineutrino cross sections. We find that our measurement, while in agreement with previous neutrino electroweak measurements, is not consistent with predictions. To facilitate interpretation of this result, model independent analyses are also presented.
