Other BAHAR Resources

This short statement, the "BAHAR Manifesto," was written by Geoffrey Samuel and Richard Roberts in 2008 as an attempt to specify some of the motivating ideas behind BAHAR. It is not intended to be in any way definitive, but it suggests some of the thinking behind our research group.

This bulletin describes some early BAHAR activities. Reports on later activities can be found on the BAHAR Blog.
