Source Selection For Analogical Reasoning: An Interactionist Approach. Doctoral Dissertation. Universityof New Mexico. 1995.


Over the course of my Computer Science career, I co-authored (with George Luger) several textbooks, including the first three editions of an Artificial Intelligence Text, published by Benjamin Cummings, and later by Addison Wesley (I left the project after the third edition to pursue other interests; George has continued through subsequent editions), and a book on Programming Languages for Artificial Intelligence. (for details, see the Technical Writings section of this site.)
