The MP2 Research Group
Our Research Publication Library
Our Published Papers - listings below

Much of our research reaches it culmination by publishing the results or using the information in original works. Members of the MP2 Research Group publish the results in various journals known throughout the world. Someday soon, even more original work will be published through the internet and we are preparing ourself for that time and future. You will find some of our previously published papers collected here, giving you the opprtunity to study our work at your leisure.

Some of the papers listed below will start with a shorter version of the original paper, usually just the title, authors and abstract. But a link will be supplied to the full version of the publication.

If you would like to contact any author for more information, make comments or contribute information, you will find all of their contact information under the Staff or Graduate Students pages of this site. When the author is not part of our current staff, an email link will be supplied.
