10 Selected Papers

World-Leading Selected Scientific Papers

Each year, many Osaka University researchers publish their research results in scientific papers. Ten selected papers are introduced here. All Osaka University researchers were asked to nominate what they considered to be outstanding papers published between early 2002 and early 2003.From 251 papers suggested, the Editorial Committee chose 100 as being noteworthy and 10 as being especially preeminent. Here, the first page of each of the 10 papers is printed just as it appeared in the original journal along with three pages of comments by the author.
