It is the generally accepted function of an introduction to sketch in the background material pertinent to the main topic at hand and thus quickly dispense with it. Such will not be the function of this introduction. Instead this introductory section will be devoted to a mere statement of the scope and purpose of this paper with a few additional comments by the writer. By way of explanation, it might first be best to point out that this discourse is neither a pioneer contribution to the subject area nor is it notable for presenting a new approach or solution to it. The ground to be covered is crossed and recrossed by a multitude of older trails well worn and placed so as to have extracted the most from the topic. To make use of an analogy, this paper serves more as a road map than as a trail-blazer, sorting and defining the already existing trails to show their courses and sources.
