== XAFS Tutorials and Overviews hosted on xafs.org (PDF format except where noted) ==
Except where noted, these are PDF files containing sets of slides for an oral presentation

 * Matt Newville's Tutorials: The last two files are companions to the longer write-up, containing similar material in a form more suitable for a lecture. This material (write-up, and the corresponding slides) is a work in progress. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
