This listing is provided as a service to those students and researchers who might otherwise write to me and ask for a copy of a preprint or a reprint. Please use it just as you would reprints you request and receive through the mail from an author. That is, for purposes of education, research, scholarly communication, or critical commentary, and to "promote the progress of Science and Useful Arts," you may make at most one copy, for non-commercial use only. I believe such use is "fair use", falling within the well established practice of authors providing a reprint to those who request one. Any other use of this site is not authorized by the author and may violate copyright.

HTML is the default format; I like it because it is fast, non-bloated, non-proprietary, and has user-adjustable font sizes. Bracketed links go to (slower, bigger) PDFs. If it says [landscape pdf] it is a paper-saving form, printing in 2 columns, landscapedly. If it says [portrait pdf], it is a large-font, portrait mode layout, sacrificing cellulose for legibility and aesthetics.
