This book is revised and expanded version of the original German text. The arrangement of the material and the structure are essentially unchanged. All remarks in the Preface to the German Edition regarding naming conventions for formulas, theorems, lemmas, and definitions are still valid as are those concerning the arrangement and choice of material.
