About this page

I choose to share my published work via this website. The reason is simply because I wrote these articles so that others may read them. I find that locking them up behind tightly controlled for profit publisher web sites is a good way of ensuring few people do that. It should be noted though that in some cases the copyright of the material belongs to the publisher and not to me. It is my understanding that publishers generally don’t object against authors providing downloadable pdfs of their published work. I know this to be true of at least the IEEE where several of these articles have been published. So, while this is legally a bit a gray area, I encourage others to the same with their published material.
