If you would like a copy of my thesis, you are welcome to download it here. For a hard copy, please just contact me.
There are many options for getting my thesis:
The Bell and Howell abstract: ps, pdf
For those who want what the grad school got: double spaced postscript (7 -> 40 megs) or double spaced pdf (15 megs)
For those of you whose eyesight isn't so bad, and you love trees: single spaced gzipped postscript (7 -> 40 megs) or single spaced pdf (15 megs)
The postscript looks better and prints better, but it is a about 4 times as big as the pdf.
I would love corrections and comments, so if you happen to read it, and feel like emailing me correction and comments, nothing in the world would make me happier.
