Term Papers / Discarded Work

I wrote term papers for various courses, that might be of interest to other grad students. As is the way of term papers, most of them were written in a frantic caffeine-powered daze, so please expect them to be riddled with typos (occasionally to the point of unreadability). Please do not distribute or cite them. They are mostly posted as examples of failed research, but with the occasional interesting finding or idea (or at least a useful bibliography).
