References
The references listed here are by no means a complete list of all books, papers, and materials I have used in this work. Other important and useful references can be found by looking at secondary references (things listed as references in the references listed below, and as references in my other articles and web pages).  Further, I acknowledge much help from many people over many years, but since they may or may not agree with the content of this paper, I do not list them explicitly here. Nevertheless, to the extent the paper is any good at all, they deserve much of the credit. To the extent the paper is no good, the blame is all mine.
