Thanks to Joseph Fine for sharing this sad news:
“Dr. Norman D. Cook passed away on June 14, 2019 after a long illness.
“See the following article from Infinite Energy Magazine.
“A third edition of his book Models of the Atomic Nucleus will hopefully be released in August.”
Dr Cook was a professor of Computer Science in the Department of Informatics at Kansai University (Osaka, Japan). He had collaborated with Andrea Rossi on some theoretical work connected with LENR and in 2015 the two published a paper together titled “On the Nuclear Mechanisms Underlying the Heat Production by the E-Cat” (https://arxiv.org/abs/1504.01261)
Here is a video of Dr Cook’s presentation at ICCF-21 in June, 2018 titled “The “Renaissance” in Nuclear Physics: Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions and Transmutations”
