I know "de" in an address or on a license plate stands for Deutschland,
don't know what made me think you were Danish, Kai... Could it be your
exotic name (tho it doesn't sound Danish, either for that matter) ?

Sorry for that stupid mistake -- now the translation from German to
English seems at least sound humanly possible... as probably not if you
were in fact Danish...

As for how Eder did it all... aside from the fact that he was obviously
a very high achiever and hard worker, my experience at the University of
Basel, not quite so long ago as Eder, but half a lifetime ago, was that
graduate students and assistants do a GREAT deal of work, including senior
thesis, et al, assigned by the professor on HIS topic and published under
his name.

Meanwhile, Kai, thanks for *your* thesis. Amazing!
