The materials for this class consist of research papers. Along with this syllabus is a list of papers and the dates on which they will be covered. The dates are subject to change. If a paper is listed with a ``*'', then a Postscript paper is available on the class home page at http://www-cse.uta.edu/cook/teaching.html. Copies of all other required papers are available on reserve in the Engineering Library. Papers which are designated as optional in the list can be borrowed from the professor upon request.
