Our goal in this book is to explain as many important theorems, examples, and techniques as possible, as quickly and directly as possible, while at the same time giving (nearly) full details and keeping the text (nearly) selfcontained. This book contains some simplifications of known approaches and proofs, the exposition of some results that are not readily available, and some new material as well.
