Annotation Nearly 50 contributions from international scientists discuss recent research in atomic, nuclear, elementary particle and astro- physics in honor of Friedel Sellschop on his 70th birthday. A sampling of topics includes chiral symmetry restoration in nuclei, common features of particle multiplicites in heavy-ion collisions, and hydrogen mobility in diamond. Three papers examine policy issues such as government support for scientific programs. The volume is not indexed. Annotation copyrighted by Book News Inc., Portland, OR.
