He has also provided me with extremely useful books, from which I got many good ideas. My greatest debt is to Mehmet Ali Erkiner, who passed away last April. He not only made extremely useful suggestions but also gave the book a thorough proofreading. The book has taken its present form thanks to his meticulous care and painstaking exactness. I would like to express my appreciation to my wife Nuray. Without her support and encouragement, this book would never have been completed.
