Over the years, I have given an abundance of talks, guest lectures and conference presentations. And I have naturally given different kinds of courses as part of my duties as professor and teacher.
I have recorded what I can remember of my presentations under four headings:

Needless to say, this is only a selection of the kinds of things that I have done. My memory does not serve me well on these matters.
And, alas, presentations are not really there to be recorded, but to be lived. Once they've been given, their time has passed.
