Editor's Note (Toru Nakagawa, Oct. 17, 2014): This General Index has been divided into four parts of different pages: i.e., (A) Parent page and Editroial, (B) References, (C) Papers, and (D) Forum. 

Note:  The page 'TRIZ Papers and Technical Reports' has accumulated the records of 'New Information' in the present category till Mar. 2012, but it will not be updated for a time being and its role will be partly covered by the present page with simplear lists of titles and authors only. (Oct. 17, 2014)

Note (Toru Nakagawa, Jan. 9, 2013):  This page has been revised.  Categories are modified slightly, and the tables of artiles of (sub) categories are color coded for easier distinguishment of subcategory.  There are a number of articles backed up from missing, enhanced in the reference information, moved to more relevant category, etc.  Hope the index useful and handy to access to articles you want (inspite of its big volume of 37 printed pages).
