Papers, etc.

On this page you will find links to various papers, presentations, theses, reviews, articles, etc. that I have written over the years. I have annotated each to explain its context and, briefly, the content. Except as noted, these are unpublished and appear within each subject in order oldest to newest. You may not distribute any of these without permission; if you wish to cite any or make use of any in your own projects, please contact me for advice and permission. Feedback and commentary is of course also welcome here, but I am not working on these directly at the moment. Current projects are linked to on the current research page. All papers are in PDF format unless otherwise stated. Formatting is lost in many cases due to changing computers and wordprocessors at one point. I have documented this as appropriate. I hope to fix this eventually. (Note to those not familiar with the Quebec system: Undergraduate arts degrees are typically 3 years, so a "third year paper" is analogous to a "senior" paper in the context of the US, for example.)
