Introduction

  • Chapter

Abstract

the reader of this book is assumed to have a grasp of the elementary concepts of set theory, general topology, and algebra. Following are brief summaries of some concepts and results in these areas which are used in this book. Those listed explicitly are done so either because they may not be exactly standard or because they are of particular importance in the subsequent text.
