Presentation Materials for Some Recent Lectures at Conferences and Symposia

From this page you can get copies (pdf files) of the presentastion materials for talks that I have given at some recent (and some not so recent) conferences and symposia. If I have given a talk in more than one place, I list only one of the presentations.

If you have trouble printing a pdf file, you probably need to install a newer version of Acrobat (4.0 or higher).
