Los Alamos Science No. 12, spring/summer 1985

Laser-Plasma Interactions, Numerical Simulations of Supersonic Jets, & DNA Libraries

Articles in this 1985 volume contain harbingers of the future: early numerical simulations that foreshadowed the revolution in supercomputing and visualization, early DNA studies that foreshadowed the Human Genome Project, and a dialogue on mathematics, philosophy, and artificial intelligence that predicts an expanding awareness of the role of intention and choice in the human condition.
