PDF and/or Postscript files are available for the overheads for some of my talks. PDF files require Adobe Acrobat Reader. Postscript files can be viewed and printed using Ghostview, which is available on line--click here to go to the site. The mathematics in some of the PowerPoint presentations requires MathType to be viewed properly.
