Community: On this page you can find contributions of GPT users who very kindly decided to share their work with the GPT community.

If you have material that you would like to share, just send us an email and we will post it here. Please realize that files that are not fully cleaned up, not well documented and not as elegant as could be, can be very useful starting points for other GPT users working on the same topic. Please don't be shy and send us your own work so that we can post it here.
