Born 1964, the author graduated 1992 on the electronic structure of highly excited electronic states of molecular hydrogen. He gathered postdoc experience on femtosecond UV-processes 1993-1995 (Paris), on cellular biophysics 1996-1999 (Twente), on cellular biochemistry 2000-2003 (Amsterdam), on the spectral theory of 4 wave mixing (Irvine, California, and Toronto), and finally on mesoscopic effects in externally driven bilayers of beads 2017 (Pamplona). Since 2004 the author taught physics, chemistry and mathematics at Delft University of Technology, with a research focus on nanotechnology. The present book is part of a decalogue, easily recognizable by the front cover design. The ten books are as many pieces of a single puzzle.
