Recent Publications

> OK. It is a bit dangerous to use the list generated by the collection agencies. They pick all publications with your name and affiliation even though you might only participated modestly. Since I am not competing for an award or applying for a job I allow this list to stand. I'll try to clean it up. Those that know me can conjecture about my involvement. Those that don't can ask for a vetted list.

    HUGS Lectures

    I gave a series of five lectures entitled "The Structure of Nucleons and Nuclei" at the 22nd Annual Hampton University Graduate Studies Program (HUGS) at Jefferson Lab in 2007.
    Here they are:
    1. Lecture 1
    2. Lecture 2
    3. Lecture 3
    4. Lecture 4
    5. Lecture 5
