Lectures

A page which will be updated as I add more items to it

For the moment this page is used to give access to lectures in the order they were given  (most recent at top)

If it seems to go back a long way, it is partially that because of my illness I do not lecture that often 

and partially that the issues are still live issues today.

 

They will be Winword documents. which might or might not include the slides from a Powerpoint presentation used in the lecture

If you require them in another form because you cannot read this format then please email_me

Please remember that these are private documents 

and they are copyrighted to John Barrs
