    Tomas Saraceno: Cloud - Specific Tomás Saraceno: Cloud — Specific by Meredith Malone.

    The artist Tomas Saraceno prominently cites the work of the TCD foams group as a source of inspiration. This book includes an interview with Denis Weaire and many images of foam structures taken by the group

    Philosophical Magazine Special Issue of Philosophical Magazine: International Workshop on Packing Problems edited by Stefan Hutzler.
    Philosophical Magazine Econophysics and Physical Economics by Peter Richmond, Jürgen Mimkes & Stefan Hutzler published by Oxford University Press.

    "The three authors are all experts in the field and have made seminal contributions to many aspects of econophysics. Their book is packed with interesting figures and thoughts."
