The analysis presented in this booklet would not have been possible
without the assistance of many people who contributed their time and
computer power. In particular, Harry Nelson and his Cray computers at
Lawrence Livermore Labs were responsible for about 40% of all of the
computer time used on the project. Additional special thanks go to
Matti Linkola of FINLAND, and the Research & Development group at CR
Industries and their timely purchase of four 386 PC's. The people who
assisted in the project are listed in more detail in
Table 13 in the
Appendix. With all of their help the project was converted from a
62.5 year project on my one machine into one which was finished in
about 2.5 years.
Special thanks also go to Rex Shudde, who used PCTEX and PICTEX to
typeset this booklet and made many helpful suggestions.
Although I had anticipated when I started the project that it
might take a number of years to complete, I never would have imagined
that it would take longer for me to write up the results than to do
the analysis. Thanks for being patient.
