We want the texts of this project to be available to the whole public for free. To avoid the possibility that someone will take parts of our work and will try to sell them in one way or another we claim copyrights on all texts in this project. This is not a copyright on the original text, but only on the HTML-versions that have been prepared especially for this project. Copyright on articles especially written for this project are shared by the author and the Department of Alfa-Informatica of the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, the host institute of the project.
Copying of materials of these pages for storage elsewhere is not permitted unless explicit permission is granted by George M. Welling, the coordinator of this project. Links to this material, however, are encouraged. On request we will allow all copying for non-commercial purposes, if proper citation is given and the texts are not changed.
