D Ralph's Original Publications

This area is the main directory of documents and data. Although I may organize or index information I've created in various ways on other pages on my web server, by placing all my original documents in a small number of common areas, they maintain more stable URL's to support your bookmarking.

This first lists is alphabetized by the proper titles. However, each document is identified by a short unique ID that is part of its web address. If you prefix any of these ID's with http://vinci.org/rlv/d/ you will arrive at the document of interest.

You may also be interested in the "cache" of publications that are referred to elsewhere on my web-site, but are cached locally on my server for web stability.
