To-Do List

This is a raw list of publications that I have identified as potentially relevant to the Project. Some of these I own but haven't had a chance to review yet. Some have been mined from the citations and bibliographies of other publications. (And I've mined only a minority of the 100+ publications covered to date.) There is a wide range of relevance and reliability in these works, so inclusion isn't necessarily recommendation. I also haven't had time to clean up the completeness and format of the citations in some cases. When I say "raw" list, I mean "raw".
