Burst Analysis Projects

This page is no longer being maintained after June 2009.
Please see the New Burst Group Projects Page


See this note about the distinction between "search" projects and "development" projects.
Many ideas, whether or not they are currently being pursued as projects, are listed on The Scientific Menu.
