If a government agency, corporation, or nonprofit organization has also published a printed report or brochure online, I have included a link directly to the document (about half the documents). Roll your mouse over the thumbnail of the cover; documents with links should turn your cursor into a hand. Depending on your browser, the cover thumbnails with links may also appear outlined in color.
To editors: If you wish to read a report or brochure not available online, please contact me directly to request a copy.
Note: In Microsoft Internet Explorer, you will also see a few details about each report or brochure - such as my specific role in the project, the publishing organization, and the publication date - if you run your mouse over the cover page; other browsers, such as Safari and Firefox, may not reveal the hidden text or color outlines, but should still change your cursor to a hand on any page with a link so you can click through to the report or brochure online.
Any questions, of course, please contact me.

Brochures and reports for which I wrote much of the final text, and may also have proposed diagrams, provided photographs, or designed the layout:
Brochures and reports where I contributed a rough draft, or only some sections, or served primarily as an editor:
Press releases that I drafted:
"Over the Last 8 Billion Years, Beautiful Rotating Disk Galaxies like our own Milky Way Gradually Formed from Earlier Chaotic Systems,"for the University of California High-Performance AstroComputing Center, October 19, 2012
"Three 'Bolshoi' Supercomputer Simulations of the Evolution of the Universe Announced by Authors from University of California, New Mexico State University," for the University of California High-Performance AstroComputing Center, September 29, 2011: press release led to the following stories:
"A Box of Universe," by Brian Hayes, American Scientist, January-February 2012
"Universe on Fast Forward," by Joel R. Primack and Trudy E. Bell, Sky & Telescope, July 2012 (cover story)
"The Cosmological Supercomputer," by Joel R. Primack, IEEE Spectrum, October 2012
"Astronomers Pin Down Galaxy Collision Rates by Comparing Hubble Space Telescope Photographs to Supercomputer Simulations," for the University of California High-Performance AstroComputing Center, October 27, 2011
"Colliding Dwarf Galaxy Triggered Formation of Milky Way's Spiral Arms - Revealed by Supercomputer Simulation" for the University of California High-Performance AstroComputing Center, September 15, 2011
For UC-HiPACC, I also developed a public service for astronomy clubs called AstroShorts: one-page features about research in computational astronomy designed to be reprinted in the monthly bulletins of amateur astronomical societies. AstroShorts published so far: "Milky Way: Cosmic Cannibal!" "Planet Formation: More Questions Than Answers," "Disk Galaxies: Settling for Beauty with Age,""Simulating the Universe,""Catching Stars That Go BANG!""How the Milky Way Became Spiral?
