I'm working hard on switching over from IRLS to HYCD
(Hyperbolic Hybrid Conjugate Directions) in chapter noiz.
ps-->PDF compression is still making a mess of some figures.

Right now some of the fonts are pretty ugly in BEI and GEE.
If you are planning to print those books, better to wait until I get this fixed.

in preparation for winter '97-'98 class.

These are much smaller but have no figures.
UNIX people who have
xdvi might like DVI files
I compressed all the files so transmission should be 3-6 times faster.
I find Mosaic decompresses properly but Netscape does not.
What you get depends not on me, but who configured your
browser and what they included. Good luck!

Basic Earth Imaging (BEI) with Jim Black,
180 pages, is now available for download.
