References

The following reference list was derived from the list on the ProScan web page. I have reorganized the list according to topics and expanded it slightly. All references listed here have been published in print, there are no web-published references.

Many of these articles are from non-English sources and I do not know their content; if anyone can enlighten me on any of these I would appreciate it. Some references are incomplete as to author or title; if you have access to this information please forward it and I will update the list. If you have additional references please send me all of the necessary information and I will add it. I am working toward getting as many of these references on-line as possible. Of course, this requires the cooperation of the copyright holder. If you have a non-copyrighted article or can obtain permission to post, please let me know.
