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.
