****** Blanket Acknowledgement ******

The staff who prepared the WWW page at PPPL deserve a blanket
acknowledgement, and the others who have prepared much of PPPL's
public information do too, since I have drawn heavily on their
work in a variety of different sections.

developments in electrostatic confinement
! Paul Koloc, prometheus!pmk@cs.umd.edu - info on the plasma focus
and Z-pinch approaches.

* Particular thanks to Stephen Cooper at JET, who posted in Dec. 1993
on the state of JET research, which I quoted extensively.

*** Section 7 - Educational Opportunities

* Geoff Maddison (geoff.maddison@aea.orgn.uk) and
* Diane Carroll (via nuf@pppl.gov) - for providing
information on summer programs.
! Art Carlson - list of major upcoming conferences and plasma
schools in various countries.

! Joe Chew - for making himself available to provide info.
* Bonnie Nestor, mnj@ornl.gov - info on UTexas net resources.
? Perry Phillips, phillips@hagar.ph.utexas.edu - more Texas info.
! Chuck Harrison, harr@netcom.com - clued me in to sunsite resources.
! Steve Fairfax - told me about MIT WWW
pages, and thereby led me to take another look at the DOE info.

*** Section 10 - Glossary - Acknowledgements:

! Jake Blanchard, blanchard@engr.wisc.edu - suggested we have a
list of acronyms too.
! Arthur Carlson, awc@ipp-garching.mpg.de - supplied additional
definitions, made corrections / amplifications / revisions to
earlier definitions.
! Edward Chao, ehchao@theory.pppl.gov - info on LANL fusion research,
additions and corrections to various definitions.

quality control, and comments on the usefulness of the FUT.
* Jim Day, jim.day@support.com - initial list of terms, additional
definitions, modifications to earlier definitions.
! Steve Fairfax - additional definitions
from the Alcator weekly reports.
* Robin Herman, _Fusion: Search for Endless Energy_; I borrowed a
few terms from her glossary. Cited as (from Herman). (Many
of these terms derived from the PPPL glossary I also used.)
