This thesis was originally written on an obsolete NEC Japanese word processor using a now defunct program. The following files were prepared from the original ones by James Jennings, after the author was told by a number of professional companies that the floppy discs on which the original files resided were impossible to read and the data lost. Thank you James, for doing the impossible!

Please bring any errors that you might find to our attention, so that we can correct them.
