Each of you who is registered in the seminar for credit should pick one or more of the topics that interest you and get back to me. I will then try to assign topics to registered students in a fair way.
( A ``topic" consists of the papers under a bold-face heading. Some topics have more papers than others, but the papers under a topic are all closely related).
If you are registered in the course for credit you are expected to give a talk on your chosen topic at some time during the term.
