Self-archived: 1 July 2010
This page hosts my self-archived version of my PhD thesis:
The first link above is the original thesis as I submitted it in 2003.
The second link is a compact version, which is intended to be easier to read and easier to carry. The 67 pages of normal surface tables (Appendix B) have been removed completely, and the thesis has been reformatted to use single line spacing. Otherwise, the content is unchanged.
