Research Publications

GFDI research contributions currently include over 400 articles published in quality scientific journals with high standards of review, plus 4 books (two written by faculty members, one written by a distinguished visiting scientist, and one written by a recipient of the GFD Ph.D. degree).

Many of these publications are joint research papers involving students and faculty, or faculty members from different disciplines. Some are regarded as definitive works in their fields. Every year the Science Citation Index contains a large number of citations to these papers by scientists around the world.
