REPORTS OF CONSULTATION WORK

At the Stichting Mathematisch Centrum I wrote (between 1950 and 1960)

about 30 reports of various consultation projects. The kind of problems 

researchers needed help with were as diverse as: medicine, biology, the 

laundry industry, dentistry, fisheries, language, etc. These reports are 

mostly in Dutch and non-published, but the Center has copies of many them.
