Thesis as a single PDF file
I have finally converted the thesis to HTML format using latex2html.
There are still some defects in the conversion but I decided I will put it in anyway and improve upon it soon.
Notably, the list of tables and the list of figures are incomplete
and I had to tweak some HTML for a particularly long table to display properly.
If you are in a hurry, take a look at the abstract.
