Materials I May Have Used in Reference[edit]



I write a lot of stuff, and it doesn't come out of the blue. So, these notes or texts may have been consulted while writing articles above.

  • Class notes by Prof K. Matthews or Prof J. Olson, or that G. Palmer guy. (More recently, I have contacted John to get access to more current class notes in use at Rice. Material based on these will appear shortly)
  • The occasional pithy comment of Prof John Walker, or a Prof G. Ackers, or Prof T. Yonetani, or Prof Len Spicer.
