New Paper and Result Highlights

We highlight important papers published in peer-reviewed journals, and occasionally interesting articles from popular magazines, video presentations, etc.  Any author can submit a highlight for consideration.  SNF Editors select those deserving broad dissemination and also encourage submissions of highlights on work they consider important.  These highlights appear in SNF immediately after acceptance, on a daily basis.  Each Highlight on a peer-reviewed paper appears subsequently in the next quarterly Issue of SNF.  We also highlight recent and technical results of importance, including information on useful tools, etc.
