Media reviews
'Although almost three years have passed since the course was held (the most recent references are from 2002), the articles read well because all the authors have taken the trouble to introduce their subject with useful textbook-style material and give generally thoughtful treatments ! this book is of considerably more lasting value than your run-of-the-mill conference proceedings.'
