Numbers [36-70] were written in 1993-99 while I was a postdoc and then a lecturer at the Physics Department of Queen Mary and Westfield College, London.

Paper [45] occupies a special place in my heart, as it was started when I was single and finished when I was married.

The Mathematical Reviews numbers are given for completeness, but they serve no purpose in Mathematical Physics. This does not mean that they couldn't be useful in principle, but the current MR classification scheme makes it difficult. Although the scheme has improved recently, it is still far too coarse in Mathematical Physics to be of any practical use. The choice of reviewers is often inadequate and as a result most of the reviews consist of the abstract to the paper, which adds nothing to what is already available via the eprint archive. Until this problem is not addressed, I will not review for MR and I urge colleagues to communicate their dissatisfaction with this state of affairs to the AMS.
