This edition contains detailed solutions of selected exercises. Many readers have requested this, because it makes the book more suitable for self-study. At the same time new exercises (without solutions) have beed added. They have all been placed in the end of each chapter, in order to facilitate the use of this edition together with previous ones. Several errors have been corrected and formulations have been improved. This has been made possible by the valuable comments from (in alphabetical order) Jon Bohlin, Mark Davis, Helge Holden, Patrick Jaillet, Chen Jing, Natalia Koroleva,MarioLefebvre,Alexander Matasov,Thilo Meyer-Brandis, Keigo Osawa, Bjørn Thunestvedt, Jan Ubøe and Yngve Williassen. I thank them all for helping to improve the book. My thanks also go to Dina Haraldsson, who once again has performed the typing and drawn the ?gures with great skill.
