Publications

“…Style in scientific writing is a quality that today is on the point of vanishing. The pressure of fast publication is so great that people rush into print with hurriedly written papers and books that show little concern for careful formulation of ideas…”
– Victor F. Weisskopf in the Foreword of Pauli Lectures on Physics.
