Publications

For the papers listed below, we give links to the electronic copy of each journal publication (when possible), as well as the free-access pre-print version on the arXiv website. Note that the two versions may differ, however we do our best to keep both versions as similar as possible.

In every section we list publications chronologically with the most recent at the top. The list is by no means exhaustive; for complete lists can be found on the individual pages in the members section.
