You can find the download link <<HERE>>. I have an idea that most people will find that the colour maps (e.g. see right) are more useful than the text, so have included some high resolution .png’s of them. All this material is in the Public Domain.

This is the last of the Schwiech Lectures that I have to hand at the moment, but I am trying to source copies of the others which now in the Public Domain.
