Some important question about us and the worldThe first issue of the journalDelta (in its printed version, of course) came out in January 1974. Its 250th issue appeared more than twenty years later, in March 1995. What has changed in the meantime? The journal itself is not essentially different now from what it had been at the beginning. It seems, though, that the world outside has undergone some visible evolution.
A simple question Why? is too general and difficult to produce an illuminating answer; most probably, no better response than something like tempora mutantur could be expected. We have therefore decided to turn to some of our eminent Colleagues with questions of the same flavour, though differently formulated, hoping that they would inspire them to present their points of view on the changes which our journal's natural environment has been subject to.
The scientists were asked to choose some questions from the list of seven which they would like to comment upon. We have received many answers. You are also encouraged to send your opinions on the topics included in our questions. This may lead to the creation of a forum for general discussion on these problems.
Here are the questions:
