Here are a number of presentations I have given over the years. I have sometimes found presentations of others' work quite useful, and I hope to return the favor by placing mine here. DISCLAIMER: They come with no support or guarantee of validity but hopefully will be useful for educational purposes only. None of these were done while I was employed by any company nor are they related to any work I did while employed.
