*The original publication date was August
Because the publication date is delayed,
we have available in class, and in Professor Uhlenbeck's office, copies of the first
ten chapters (free!). The new publication date for the entire book is supposedly October.
Hot new update! We have the next two chapters, and the new publication date is October 15.
