                     The work has been collaborative including the
                     exchange of students and visits by post docs and
                     senior personnel. The experimental activity has b
                     substantial here in Berkeley. Much of the modeli
                     and theory activity is in France. So it has been a
                     benefit to both sides to have visits. This has lead
                     papers and ideas about how to run the observatio
                     that are expected to begin this winter.
