City and Regional Planning 774

The files here are intended for the use of students in C&RP 774 at OSU.

Most documents are available in two forms: as hypertext (HTML) and PDF files. The PDF files — which are correctly formatted — may require the latest version of the Adobe Acrobat Reader. The HTML versions are produced by an automatic translator: if anyone notices that the symbols seem incorrect (for example, that they don’t match those in the PDF files, or if the notation changes without explanation from the one used in class) I’d appreciate being told, especially if you are viewing the material on a Macintosh.

Papers: I’ve tried to return your papers to your CRP mailboxes, but I couldn’t find mailboxes for everyone. If you can’t find your paper, you can pick it up from me at your convenience early next quarter.
