    An impressive series of papers was just posted by Diana Kaminski
    http://www.math.uni-hamburg.de/home/kaminski/

    We remember her from papers where she collaborated with Jerzy Lewandowski.
    Also, if I remember correctly, contributions to the Zakopane QG school.
    She was the recipient of Emmy Noether fellowship support and has been working under the leadership of Christian Fleischhack who is well-known already from some years back to those of us who follow Loop research.
    He is at Paderborn but his webpage is at the Uni Hamburg site:
    http://www.math.uni-hamburg.de/home/fleischhack/

    I think of her as being at Uni Paderborn in Germany, and so she must be judging from the by-line of this series of papers. But the webpage I just gave says Uni Hamburg.
    I don't know very well who Kaminski is, but I have the feeling that I should know.

    What do you think is the significance of this series of 6 papers that she has just posted?
    Can you point out anything that could help me or other people understand.
    The bibliography is very interesting, bringing together many things including NCG.

    Here is a link to the 6 abstracts all together, for convenience.

    I can't find any of them. Can you list some?

    Oh! I may be confusing her with someone else. As I remembered it was you who were pointing to some Lewandowski et al paper which someone with a name like Kaminski co-authored. If you don't remember, then I am very likely mistaken!

    I see. The earlier co-author had the same last name. It was a guy: Wozzeck Kaminski.

    Not Diana. Maybe there is some relation?

    Also it was W Kaminski who gave the presentation at the 2011 Zakopane school:
    http://www.fuw.edu.pl/~kostecki/school3/

    Diana attended one or more of the Zakopane QG schools/workshops but did not give a paper.
    So I can't find earlier work.
    She seems to be a relative newcomer.
    ====================
    EDIT: Francesca points out that Diana gave a paper at Zakopane in 2010:

    So a new person in the field - how interesting!

    She is not so "new" to the LQG community. She was in Zakopane in 2008.
    Here her talk in 2010 http://www.fuw.edu.pl/~jpa/qgqg3/DianaKaminski.pdf" [Broken]
    She is an amazingly good mathematician, nice to see these papers of her
    (notice the German style, 300 pages at once!). Cheers, Frances
    ps: as far as I know, no relation with Wojciech Kamiński ;-)
