i'm interested in learning about how the art world uses scientific
techniques in detecting fakes or authenticating originals.

e.g. chemical analysis, mass spectoanalysis, or neutron
cross-section analysis.

does anyone have any URLs on the Web and/or citations to the printed
litearture. if yes, please send them along.

thanx either way -len
