Web Site

Welcome to my web site. I hope you will find some
information of interest in these pages. The material to be found
here fits into one of three broad categories, as explained below:

1. Information about books I have written which have already appeared or are about to be published. These web pages provide a rough guide to the books’ contents and details about how to place an order for them.
2. Previews of papers or articles which had not appeared at the time they were placed on these pages. These can be read using Adobe Acrobat. If you are unfamiliar with Adobe Acrobat, please click here to find out more.
3. A wholly new kind of publication called an Internet Publication: this is a paper or article which is published exclusively on the Internet and is not intended to be published subsequently in printed form.
