The Support Materials for Private Universe Project in Mathematics are available here for download as PDF files. You'll need
a copy of Adobe Reader to read the files. Acrobat
Reader is available free for download from adobe.com.
Only some of the articles which are required reading for
these workshops are available online, due to copyright issues.
However, we have listed the sources of all the publications
should you want to locate them. Links to PDF files are listed
for those available for download.
