General: These files have been posted online since the Fall of 2004, although I started writing them for my own use many years before that. I am still working on making them more useful for other people by gradually improving the organization and adding to the content of the files.
Feedback: Any comment or suggestion, whether it points out errors or suggests additions or anything else, is welcome. I will reply to every email comment I get.
Suggestions: Credit will be given for any suggestion that leads to additions or changes in the files (unless the author prefers not to be named). Since I do not have a lot of extra time to devote to this site, I may or may not follow a suggestion that involves reading anything other than a short email; It is much more helpful for people to tell me directly, briefly, what their point is rather than to suggest that I read a paper or a webpage.
Authors: Anyone who feels that I have borrowed too many words from their papers without giving them credit can tell me so, and I will do something about it.
References included: The fact that a reference is included in these files does not necessarily imply an endorsement or a positive opinion about its validity or interest.
References not included: I may have missed many important references, even if I have seen them, because I may not know enough about the relevant areas to appreciate their importance. Please help me fix any omissions.
Finally: This site developed and maintained on a MacBook Pro, mostly using Macromedia Dreamweaver, with support by Safari and Mozilla Firefox.
