My diploma thesis advisor told me not to read EGA/SGA, because it was written at a time when they didn't know which generality was necessary (and I'm doing algebraic geometry).

Pavel Krsek, Ph.D., diploma thesis advisor
During the summer of 1998, lightning generated signals were measured in theELF frequency range at three different sites in Western North America as partof the Sprites'98 campaign. The measurements were done with Metronix MFS05induction coil magnetometers and SPAM MkIII data loggers, both instruments,which were originally designed for magnetotellurics. With the recorded data,my Diploma thesis advisor Martin Füllekrug was able to triangulate thesource lightning, and confirm its accuracy through comparison withtriangulation provided by the NLDN network. He was also able to estimate thestrength and duration of the generating electric current, and compare this tooptical Sprite observations. Through these studies he could show, that part ofthe pulses was not generated by the initial cloud-to-ground lightning, but bythe following Sprites. This confirmed the hypothesis, that Sprites were notjust a luminous phenomenon, but an actual electric discharge in the upperatmosphere. • Diploma thesis advisor: "Duale Prozesse und Emotionen in der ökonomischen Theorie" • Diploma thesis advisor: "Entstehung und Bedeutung von Arbeitsangebot und Präferenzen in der neoklassischen Theorie"
