All the pdf files referred to below are screen presentations of talks. The files are listed in the order opposite to the chronological one.
Warning: do not print the files. Each of them contains a huge number of pages (about 300). The pages next to each other are almost identical. Usually only one phrase or formula is added.
Disclaimers: Of course, each talk is not presented entirely on the screen. Thus a file sholud not be considered as a complete account of the talk. This is rather a skeleton around which the story evolved. For some talks, the file was prepared only for the first part of the talk.
