Invited Lectures: If I include students and collaborators, there are 128 (but I do not keep a very accurate count).

Publications: My total number of publications according to ISI is ~158 (Spring 2015; with this advanced search {(au= jones ta and cu=sweden) or (au=jones ta and ci=martinsried)} but it misses 3 papers (#6,  #15, #28) with ~300 citations since they were published as Jones A.). According to my CV (including book chapters etc. ) the total is 164 and one patent. I have an h-index of  >= 64 (i.e. 64 of my publications have been cited at least 64 times or more), and over 32,000 citations in total (Spring 2015). According to Noorden  et al.  (Nature 2014, 514, X-Y) #55 is among the 100 most highly cited papers of all time, for a while at least.
