Reasearch Highlights 2000 - 2001

A Collection of Research Results and Highlights
as Presented to the Fachbeirat 2002

This collection of MPE's scientific results and projects of the years 2000 and 2001 was produced for the MPE Scientific Advisory Board Meeting of 17 to 19 June 2002 (Scientific Advisory Board ). Its intention is to give a comprehensive overview and a somewhat more detailed information on scientific results, ongoing projects and data analysis spanning the years 2000 and 2001 in a fashion that is complemetary to the format of the Annual Reports.
The scientific (in some cases also the technical) personnel involved in a specific research is clearly identified and solely responsible for the content of the abstract.
No attempt was made to balance the contributions from the groups, or to achieve any kind of completeness.

Each highlight is presented in the form of a mini-poster.
The file format is, if not otherwise noted, postscript.
Almost all postscript files have been "zipped" (compressed).
