This is the proceedings of an international symposium held in Trinity College Dublin in 1988; the papers are mainly physics, mathematics and astronomy, with some geology and biophysics. It is out of print, but Tyndall publications is preparing a set of abstracts initially, and will perhaps do a website re-publication in full in due course.


International Journal of Tensiography and Computer Methods in Surface Sciences: (We provide here for the publication on the Internet of a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to an innovative area in the analytical instrumentation domain. This will be ground-breaking as regards the scope of Tyndall Publications, and will probably end up on a separate web-site, as it is unrelated to the main content of this site. It is however, being optical, within the scope of the interests of John Tyndall, so for the present we reference it here. Enquiries should go to Dr Norman McMillan, mcmillan (at) itcarlow (dot) ie).
