  title={1 1 A pr 1 99 9 New coorbital dynamics in the solar system},
  author={F Namouni and Apostolos A. Christou and Carl D. Murray}
Following the discovery that asteroid (3753) Cruithne was a coorbital companion of the Earth, a new theory of coorbital motion has been developed whereby planets or satellites can maintain companion objects in the same orbit as themselves. This has led to the prediction of hitherto unknown types of stable motion, all of which are seen in the evolution of specific near-Earth asteroids. The slow diffusion of such objects through the Earth's coorbital region is shown to lead to temporary capture… Expand

The parser, especially its mapping rule interpreter, used in KBMT-89 is described, characterized by its ability to produce semantic and syntactic structures of a parse simultaneously and therefore more efficiently than other kinds of analyzers. Expand

I am writing with a simple plea to balance the voluminous articles about treatment in your journal with a modicum of information about nature and caring effects to rekindle the perception of physicians as healers, not only treaters, who relish the gifts of nature, and foster the humanistic aspect of medicine that has thrived for millennia.
