Below are the transparencies and useful web links from this talk:

The new version of the talk in `beamer' class is here in pdf format

My old talk in the `seminar' class: The slides to this version are available in dvi format, postscript, latex source and pdf

The simple latex file is located simple-article.tex

While a more extended version is available talk-article.tex. Also need picture.eps.

You will need the associated my-bibliographic-database.bib if you are to successfully compile these

Leslie Lamport's small2e.tex and sample2e.tex are also available
