My thanks to the following Apress/Springer Science + Business Media representatives who took my rudimentary thoughts and polished them into acceptable literary form.
Jeff Olson, the executive editor, who facilitated the smooth transition.
Rita Fernando, the coordinating editor, who made the transition painless.
Kezia Endsley, who copyedited the manuscript superbly.
SPi International, which helped improve the drawings and figures in the book.
Without their help and assistance, the information would not have been nearly as clear or acceptable.
