Introduction to the WWW version
of these proceedings
Prior to the workshop, we decided to publish the proceedings
electronically to keep registration costs down. This Web site
is the result of that decision. Contributions to the proceedings
were submitted by the authors in LaTeX, and have been converted to
HTML for presentation on the WWW. Although the content of the
two versions is identical, there are a few items peculiar to the
- All contributions can be accessed from the
contents page. At no time in your
browsing will you be more than one level removed from this page.
Contributions are implemented on the Web in up to three parts:
- the text and figures of the contribution;
- transcripts of discussions following the talks; and
- the LaTeX/PostScript version of the contribution.
- The LaTeX version available is a compressed file of the talk/poster/discussion,
in PostScript format, with layout and pagination exactly as it appears
in the hardcopy.
- A few of these files are TARred and will split into several
.ps files when you un-TAR them; this is done for very large contributios with
numerous figures. All contributions are formatted for two-sided
- All files are compressed regardless of their size to conserve disk space.
- The size in MB of the compressed file, as well as of any
uncompressed file(s) into which it will split, is listed along with
the link. If you need to download the uncompressed files,
send me an email request.
- Talk contributions are divided into several HTML documents, usually
corresponding to the sections of the paper, while the usually shorter posters
are presented in one HTML page.
- In several cases, a significant loss of figure quality occurred in the
transformation from .PS or .EPS to .GIF. The quality of these figures
is without exception better in the LaTeX version, and I encourage users
to download these hardcopies.
- HTML limitations are evident in these pages. A few contributions with many
equations have simply been scanned, and Greek letters have been converted to
their text equivalents. The traditional subscript meaning Sun has been
replaced with a subscripted "Sun." Other conventions will be obvious. The
LaTeX version of the contributions contains all the proper mathematical
