Abstract This series consists of Reports of the Department of Mathematics. The reports are publications of continued research performed by Northwestern University professors under National Science Foundation grants. These grants allow professors to continue their research, with the stipulation that results are made public. This series, then, provides a forum for the dissemination of grant-funded research. The reports, the first of which appeared in October 1964, are sequentially numbered, and have been...
