If you click on the various underlined texts, your computer will download and open either a word document or a set of
power-point slides.  (Some slides have significant content in the notes pages.)   Some of these are finished documents,
some are fragments, and some are just plain incomplete.  In many cases the same basic research has been recycled into
various presentations.  All this stuff is here to be shared.  If you like, you can contact the author at   If you are from a university, please know that the author generally accepts invitations to
present any of this work to students and faculty, provided transportation costs are paid.  If you are from a for-profit company or
government agency, the author is available for consulting at the rate of $1600US per day, plus travel expenses.  However, I
am happily retired, I have enough money, and I am quite busy with the next phase of my life, which emphasizes Argentine
tango at present.  So I am not actively trying to drum up work, but I am happy to be involved in anything that is interesting.
