We had the good fortune of working together with a large number of gifted individuals over the years, who made significant impact in our research activity. We appreciate the contributions of every one of them. Over the years, we also collaborated with numerous individuals, who were officially enrolled in other institutions but either visited us or collaborated with us at distant sites. While we sincerely acknowledge their involvement and contributions, we list below only our alumni who were officially enrolled at the U. of Alberta.
