Unpublished Notes

Beware of what you find here!
These notes are of varying degrees of completeness, correctness, and quality.
Some stuff ended up in my graduate thesis.
Other stuff ended up in my publications.
Some stuff I never got around to finishing.
Some stuff I will never finish, while some stuff are the seeds of future publications.


"Finished" means that I have double-checked all the equations,
proofread the text a few times, listed all the references, and
put in all the plots, diagrams, figures, & sections instead of
their placeholders. However, I probably still have plans to
add/change some material in each of them, so check the version number!
These notes can be more or less freely distributed.

"Unfinished" means that I have *not* double-checked all the
equations, nor listed all the references, and still have many
placeholders for various plots, diagrams, figures, & sections
. I may plan on ''finishing'' them one day, but for now, they are
not really meant for distribution. However, given all these caveats,
they contain alot of information and some sections are "finished."
Therefore, if you are interested in them, take them, but beware,
I promise nothing!
