Lawrence G. Piper's Journal Publications

Here is a relatively complete list of my journal publications. The articles I have scanned are hyper linked in the list below. I have most of the more useful ones scanned and uploaded. If there's something you want that I haven't scanned yet, please e-mail me and I'll shoot you a copy if I can find one. Eventually, I'll post some reports and unpublished journal manuscripts I've written.

It should go without saying that these papers are offered for personal use only. If you are planning on using them for something of a commercial nature, please consult me first.
