A new paper from my COROT activity is out (4 October, 2004)
My course about the Luminosity Oscillations Imager, from the XV Winter School in Tenerife, is out (May 6, 2004).
C'est le chant du cygne...I have put 3 new papers either already published or being submitted. The accepted paper is about ML estimation. The papers submitted are related to COROT and to solar activity effect on solar eigenfrequencies. It is likely that this is going to be the last update written in ESTEC (March 12, 2004).
As some of you might have heard, I am leaving the Agency for taking a position at the Institut d'Astrophysique Spatiale, Orsay. I will end my duties at ESA on March 31st, 2004. (September 12, 2003)
A new review paper has been added (September 12, 2003

The viewgraphs are in English... (July 5, 2000) The site is alive again. This period has been dormant for 2 reasons: the caretaker was busy preparing and writing his 'habilitation a diriger des recherches'; and was occupied following football... More scientific activities are going to take place now. (July 4, 2000) Unfortunately for the rest of the world, we won the Euro2000 championship (July 4, 2000)
