I would like to thank Bastian Spanneberg for his contribution to this book. In addition, my thanks go to the reviewers, who substantially influenced this book with their insightful comments: Marcel Birkner, Lars Gentsch, Halil-Cem Gürsoy, Felix Müller, Sascha Möllering, and Alexander Papaspyrou. I also would like to say thanks for the many discussions with friends and colleagues—many thoughts and ideas are the product of such discussions.
I would also like to thank my employer, innoQ.
Finally, I would also like to say thanks to my friends, parents, and relatives, whom I often neglected while working on this book, and especially to my wife to whom I am indebted for the English translation of this book.
Of course my thanks go also ...
