What you can find here
My papers and software are mirrored in North America.
This website includes
my BibTeX file, mackay.bib, containing citations (email me if you think it's not up to date)
much of the software that I have written, including simulation software,
and teaching software (information theory and neural networks | dynamics);
databases of research results (especially for error-correcting codes)
software for making error-correcting codes, and databases of
data sets relating to machine learning.
- almost all the papers
I have written - on Hebbian learning, Bayesian methods, Neural networks,
Latent variable models,
Error-correcting codes, and Natural selection;
Most of these files are ".ps.gz", i.e.
postscript files (.ps) compressed with gzip (.gz).
- Since Mon 15/7/02, I have tried to provide PDF alternatives to
all postscript files.
- Since Sun 20/10/02, DJVU alternatives are also provided.
If you don't have gunzip on your machine,
you can find gunzip
executables for various systems
the msdos executable is also here.
Some users report that gsview32 is useful for viewing the ps.gz files.
Further links about gzip and gunzip:
Some users of windows machines find that
if they download a ps.gz file by http then it does
not unzip and display, but if they download it by ftp,
it works fine.
To convert an http URL to an ftp URL,
the following pair as
djvu files are
provided for some papers.
