Notes on Notation
The list above contains a mix of sources. The list includes some which I have already read or examined, and others which have come to my attention but which I have not yet read or examined. I note these categories in parentheses at the end of the listings.
If I have completed reading of source, the note will say "rc" and the date. If I have completed examination of a source (by examination I mean a more superficial perusal than reading) the note will say "ec" and the date. If I have not yet read or even examined a source, the note will say "tbr" (to be read) or "tbe" and the date.
If, after examining a source, I decide that it bears no relation to the thesis, then I will probably remove it from this list rather than leave it in the list.
