BIMA Memoranda Index

We have instituted a BIMA Memoranda Series for technical and scientific memoranda relevant to BIMA. This should encourage communication and collaboration between the BIMA institutes (see also the ALMA memo series and the SMA memo series). There is no formal refereeing system. We merely ask that the memos be relevant to BIMA, and that the authors will not object to their memos being made available to all users. All memos are available as abstracts. Some are available in full text in various formats.

To submit a memo, send the abstract as ASCII and the text as PDF, PostScript, HTML, or LaTeX to Marc Pound or Peter Teuben. We will assign the memo number. If you don't find what you are looking for here, check with Mel Wright's home page for any latest modifications that have not yet made it into this list.
