This library shelf holds files and links mostly of scientific interest.
Some are archival; others are more recent.  We may be adding more
as time and banner advertisers  permit.
 

Most library files require an Adobe Acrobat 3.0  plug in for online
viewing.  Offline, these may be accessed by an Acrobat reader, or
with use of any program (GhostScript, Transverter, Illustrator... )
that can accept v 3.0 or higher .PDF files as inputs.

Ongoing discussions of emerging scientific developments can also
be found in our What's New? blogs.
