The SHArK project, while simple in it goals and implementation, is rather complex in terms of the various phenomena dealt with to perform a single experiment. This page and those linked herein are intended to help the reader understand various aspects of the project.

Where possible, topics are linked to outside references that describe that topic with a general treatment. Where necessary, aspects of the topic unique to our project (or that perhaps need further clarification) will be discussed in further detail.
