What are the requirements of personal jurisdiction in a federal court?

The U.S. Supreme Court has granted lower courts the power to hear cases. This power is known as jurisdiction. You remain an investigator for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, and you have a suspect that is in the neighboring state. The U.S. Attorney wants to arrest this person but believes in training his investigators, so he has asked you to research the topic of jurisdiction. Then, he wants you to write a paper of 1–2 pages that covers the following:
