About

This is effectively the second edition of my PhD Thesis. The first edition was produced at the Open University in 1981 using the computing facilities of Cambridge University that were available on the Open University campus in Milton Keynes via landline connections to Cambridge. It was produced using the Cambridge University egcal markup language, which is or was similar to nroff with the facility to create user definable extensions. The original was stored on magnetic tape (Cambridge user id mb25), but I suspect that the tape has long since been reassigned to another user and subsequently been scrapped. The only extant hardcopies that I know of are held by myself, my supervisor Jake, and the Open University Library.

The only major differences between this edition and the original other than the original was on paper and this is electronic, are that the layout style is slightly different, I have added this page, I have replaced page numbers with hypertext links on the contents page and lists of figures and tables, I have added cross reference and other hyperlinks, and I have taken the opportunity to make some spelling and minor grammatical corrections. However in the transcription process some errors may have crept in.
