Peter Szolovits’ Publications

 

These are listed in chronological order.  Some are hyperlinked to on-line available copies of the documents. Note that in some cases, these are not as they appeared in print but late drafts, because of copyright limitations.  PMCID shows Pubmed Central identifiers, which represent papers describing work supported by NIH grants, which become freely available after a publisher’s embargo of no more than a year.  Papers that list only PMID refer to Pubmed listings, which provide an abstract and possibly a link to the publisher’s site; this is the case mainly for older papers that today would be covered by Pubmed Central. Recent talks and panel presentations are listed at the end.
