Casimir Theses 2017

Appendix -  Casimir theses 2017
Casimir provides PhD students with an ISBN number for their theses. Together, these theses  form the “Casimir PhD Series”. All PhD theses published in Casimir are listed below. Two PhD students in Casimir did not choose to submit a request for a Casimir PhD series number, therefore their publications lack a Casimir PhD series number.
