Ah - but you are still the expert on photochemistry and what is actually happening at small scales. Some of the mechanisms and proposed theory Haist talks about when it comes to the formation of image silver are fascinating. When I first read the book I realized my mental picture of what goes on at the microscopic level during development was quite flawed. I bet most people are in the same boat.
I'd probably have to get some of the rust out of my calculus before tackling Kriss's work. On the other hand perhaps we could still have an intelligent discussion about the theory without necessarily getting into the mathematics of image content. Not sure.
I still have a few more things to post to the thread here so we'll see how it goes.
