  • Well now! Hadn't expected a reaction like this. Just a quick note: these are the slides that accompanied my presentation and, being supplementary, don't have a lot of explanatory text. That is, the slides are probably fairly confusing without commentary. Feel free to ask question here in the comments and I will be happy to clarify.
