Case Studies in Superconducting Magnets
Design and Operational Issues
This story is concerned with the lasting bond of friendship between two men and how their lives unfold, from the time when they are at boarding school together, to when they become husbands, then fathers, and in Hartmann's case a grandfather. Each is haunted by their past in their comfortable, bourgeois life in which everything is going well until Hartmann's daughter has a miscarriage. They then realize, for the first time since childhood, that a disorder has occurred which they are unable to put right.
