Former Students:

Interaction is an important part of my research. Consequently, I have written few single author papers. Below I list the young people -- students and postdocs -- I have worked in the past. In cases of joint supervison I have marked by "*". Some postdocs were Prize fellows for whom I was either the nominal supervisor or took active interest. I have marked such entries with "#".

If you know the homepages of anyone below please let me know. On the other hand, please also let me know if you think that I have overlooked you or that you object to being on this list.
