More to learn from print media

This is a list which has been put together by some CRONUS-EU experts (thanks to all of you!) and me after the CRONUS summerschool at Hárkány, Hungary in 2006. We thought a very small selection of papers might help real "TCN beginners" to get a feeling for the method and also to the (so far unsolved) problems related with it. The list is not at all objective and constantly under progress. See for yourself if it is helpfull! And for all the "TCN experts" out there: "I am sorry that your latest very important paper is not on this list!" ;-)
