Mathematical Foundations



This chapter contains a collection of useful mathematical concepts and tools, which are useful, directly or indirectly, for the subsequent development to be covered in the main portion of the book. While much of the material is standard and can be found in classical textbooks, we also present a number of useful items that are not commonly found elsewhere. Essentially, this chapter serves as a brief overview and as a convenient reference when necessary.
