Abstract

Friends! Ladies and Gentlemen!

It was, and still is, a great pleasure and honor to me when I learned that the present symposium was to be held in honor of myself. Before continuing further, I want to express my heartfelt thanks to the members of the organizing committee and to all participants in this symposium.
