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 2003 and early 2004.  From the 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. If you are interested in any of these 10 papers, please contact the authors by e-mail. The e-mail addresses of the researchers are listed on the Osaka University web site.
