NOTE:
I present here  the only digital copy of my Master's thesis which survives. There are several minor errors which were corrected in the final submittal. I here offer only Chapter II, I will be happy to convert the rest to html and make my entire thesis available if someone requested it for legitimate reasons. Please do not copy or reproduce this excerpt without my permission.

Sincerely
Kent Slinker
