Pythias Papers

I have an unfortunate tendency not to publish my work in peer-reviewed journals.  What happens is I write papers for conferences and post them either here or on the Educational Data Systems website, along with other miscellaneous materials.  Therefore, none of the papers posted here has been peer-reviewed.  If you want to contribute a review, even negative, please email it to me and I will post it.
