Numerical Programs
Here I shall add from time to time various relatively small numerical programs I have written and which others might find useful. Please do not count on any help of any kind on my part, apart from the comments in the write-up, you will have to figure out everything if you want to use it, how to use it and all the rest. However, if you use it, please let me know about that and include the corresponding acknowledgment  in the relevant documents.


 

                                              How to become a GOOD Theoretical Physicist by Gerard 't Hooft
                                              
                                               Vladimir Gribov (BH)
                                          (That was my graduate school. I was the speaker at one of those seminars,
                                           which started in the late morning, no lunch break, and ended in late afternoon.
                                           Only after my work was dissected to the bone, and BH was one of the main debaters,
                                           I was allowed to officially defend my thesis.)
