The Blind Spot: Lectures on Logic
These lectures on logic, more specifically proof theory, are basically intended for postgraduate students and researchers in logic. The question at stake is the nature of mathematical knowledge and the difference between a question and an answer, i.e., the implicit and the explicit. The problem is delicate mathematically and philosophically...
Translocations in Solid Tumors
One of the most fruitful areas of research, as judged by the very large numbers of new cancer genes identified, has been the molecular analysis of recurrent chromosomal translocations. The original concept that gave rise to this book was that key scientists involved in the original isolation of the genes involved in each recurrent solid tumor...
