Tutorials and Talks
Here are linked powerpoint only or powerpoint presentations with the vocal
soundtrack. The presentations with sound are either QuickTime Movie Files (.mov) or MPEG-4
Movies, either of which will play with the free Quicktime player.
The QuickTime Movies have been prepared to stream with a fast startup, which means that they should
begin to play before they have been completely downloaded. I suggest you try one of the smaller tutorial movies to see
if your system is properly configured. It should start to play within about half a minute; if not, you may need
to download the QuickTime player or get a faster connection to the Internet.
The tutorials are organized with the plan that they be viewed in the
order listed within each category. The programs vary in length from 15 min. to 50 min.
The list is not yet finished, so the best current order is to view my SPUDM talk first (covering the Allais Paradox),
followed by the seven on independence properties, and finally, the one on
New Tutorials are currently being prepared
and will soon be linked here. Please check back later for a more complete
list of presentations! The next ones coming up include historical reviews and a
tutorial on the Reflection Hypothesis.
