My favorite things

Success in science is based above all on teamwork today, even if it can sometimes take on incomprehensible forms. Some colleagues, for instance, appear as authors of several hundred scientific publications. Is that possible? Could they explain in a comprehensible way for each of the papers on which methodes it is based? I received my scientific education at a time when colleagues from the beginning and middle of the 20th century served as examples. So it became a challenge to me to also write my own scientific publications, and they are now, for once, compiled in the following list.

But of course, science is always good teamwork and many more publications resulted from cooperation with great colleagues, and a full list of publications can be downloaded here.
