This discussion of past and present research
includes a periodic table indicating systems that have been
investigated by the Beck research group over the years.
Some detail regarding recent breakthroughs (2007-09) in the treatment of
the lanthanide series of elements is also provided.
The presentation has been tailored to a general audience (hopefully), so
scientists are referred to publications listed at the link below
for the nitty-gritty details.
This list of publications by the Beck research
group contains items dating back to 1969.
Some newer papers are available in draft form.
This sequence highlights the changes in the Beck
research group’s methodology, personnel, and computing resources
throughout its history.
