In the spirit of the series, I have kept abbreviations to a minimum, so as to make the book as reader-friendly as possible. Some of them, however, are very frequent or very convenient, and although most readers are likely to recognize them at first glance, others may find it useful to have them explained. Accordingly, here is a list of the very few abbreviations that are found in the present book:
