PhD thesis


I successfully defended my PhD thesis on 2004 July 7 at the CESR's conference room (Toulouse, France). The jury was composed of Emmanuel Caux (CESR, France), Mark McCaughrean (AIP, Germany), Peter von Ballmoos (CESR, France), Pavel Kroupa (Bonn, Germany), and Thierry Montmerle (LAOG, France). The second referee, Eduardo Martin (IAC, Spain), could not attend my PhD defense.

PhD thesis as a pdf file (about 7 Mb). My thesis is also available on the website of the Astrophysical Institute Potsdam, where I did my PhD under the supervision of Mark McCaughrean.
