Does anyone know of a good source for these, especially on-line? I was browsing around and found that Clampitt has been using Ramsey theory, which sounds as if people are wading out past the shallow end of the pond, and I'd like to catch up.

>By the way, Carl, did you see my question about scale theory

resources?

I had, but I don't really know any good sources for this type

of stuff. Might be a good question to ask on specmus.

If you can get a hold of any of these...
