Authors/Contributors and Citation
Fields has drawn heavily from its predecessor, FUNFITS, to the
extent that it is hard to separate who is primarily responsible
for what. With that in mind, giving credit to everyone involved in
FUNFITS and Fields seems appropriate. In no particular order, the
Fields Development Team is:
Doug Nychka, Reinhard Furrer,
Steve Sain, Barbara Bailey, Stephen Ellner, Perry Haaland, Michael
