During the process of writing this book, many people have helped us in various ways. We deeply appreciate their help. First, we would like to thank the anonymous reviewers who have provided us with many insightful comments and constructive suggestions. These comments have inspired us in various ways and we have incorporated many of their suggestions in our writing. It is these comments and suggestions that have improved the quality of this book.

Second, we are indebted to several colleagues at William Paterson University of New Jersey, who provide feedback on our manuscript at various stages while we were writing the book. Professor Peter Chen at the Department of Mathematics provided good comments and suggestions for Chapter 9. Anthony Joachim at the Cheng Library offered many valuable suggestions for Chapter 3. We thank Professor Carol Frierson-Campbell of Music Department for her constructive comments on Chapter 1. Special thanks are also extended to Professor Mary Chayko of Rutgers University, and Professor Janet Ruane of Montclair State University. Their reviews of multiple chapters of our manuscript were instrumental in shaping the book the way it is now.

Finally, we would like to thank the wonderful staff at Wiley. Our editor Justin Vaughan has been most supportive and patient throughout the entire process. Our project editor Ben Thatcher has guided us through the final stages of manuscript preparation and the production process. Lisa Sharp has provided help with many administrative issues.

Our deepest gratitude goes to our families for their love and support.
