Round table conferences about Relativity and Quantum Theory.In the spring of 1995, a group of keens on physics, decided it would be worthwhile to organize a weekly round table in which interesting related topics could be dealt. And so it was done.It was planned to carry on a schedule based on conferences at the highest level we can cope with. The round table has been going on a weekly basis and attached information show about the topics and bibliography discussed so far. We have been allowed to use the premises of the EUPM, Departamento de expresión gráfica, thanks to its Director D. Pedro Portillo. You are welcome to join us if you are interested on our study line in what can be known as "The Knights of the Round Table".
New: The second release of our bulletin is already outIt can be found here.
New: We have released a first copy of our bulletin(only available in Spanish)The journal can be copied without any cost by asking D. Rafael Miranda (Dpto. Expresión Gráfica en la Ingeniería . E.U. Politécnica . El Ejido) . Also, we've put the whole magazine online in gzipped postscript format. Índice
