Ron Petrick's Webpages

Publications (sorted by category)

This page contains a list of my publications and slides from selected paper talks, available for download as PDF files. For most publications, I have tried to correct the obvious typos that appeared in the published versions of these papers. Slides and BIBTEX references are available for most publications. A list of my publications ordered by publication year is also available.
