California Institute of Technology dedicated a new research laboratory and a new accelerator at separate ceremonies held in Pasadena last month. The five‐story Alfred P. Sloan Laboratory of Mathematics and Physics, converted from Caltech's old high‐voltage experimentation laboratory, will provide 50 000 square feet of floor space for the school's fast‐growing mathematics program and for expanding work in theoretical and experimental physics. The building houses a new low‐temperature laboratory and a new accelerator laboratory, and the upper three floors contain offices for faculty members and graduate students in mathematics, as well as conference and seminar rooms, a lecture hall, and a library. The new structure was made possible by a gift to Caltech from the Sloan Foundation of New York.
