Research topics

My research is discussed under following research categories, along with links to all my publications. The categories appear roughly in reverse chronological order of the papers under them. Some papers appear in more than one category. Review and pedagogical articles are in marked with a . Paper titles are linked to PDF files containing the complete text and figures. A list of all publications is available. A list of almost all papers since April 1992 is also at the cond-mat archive. Among these, is the very first paper on the cond-mat archive.
