By clicking the links below, you can read (or save to disk)
a copy of the files for my Ph.D. dissertation, submitted to
the University of Wisconsin-Madison on March 14, 1997.
The contents of my dissertation are summarized
on the Table of Contents page, which is probably
a world record for the longest T-of-C for a dissertation. :<)
So the files (RTF and PDF) will be reasonably sized,
the dissertation has been split into five parts:
ch12.rtf and ch12.PDF (the abstract, and Chapters 1 and 2)
ch34.rtf and ch34.PDF (Chapters 3 and 4)
tables.rtf and tables.PDF (tables for Chapter 3 and Appendix)
refs.rtf and refs.PDF (title page, table of contents, references)
appendix.rtf and appendix.PDF (a long dissertation-Appendix)
all parts of dissertation, © copyright 1997 by Craig Rusbult, all rights reserved
All of these files were originally written in Microsoft
Word 5.1 for Macintosh.
They have been converted into Rich Text Format (RTF) using MS-Word 6 for Mac.
When opened in any MS-Word program (I've tried 5.1, 6, 2004 on Mac, 6 with Windows 95),
almost everything turns out fine, although on a PC a few "symbol" fonts are misinterpreted,
and in "page view" a few pages (with tables and also 2 columns) have a strange layout.
With WordPerfect 6 on a PC, most things are OK, but some tables are reformatted.
