This key is a long-term project edited, coordinated, and maintained by Dave Cowles.    I am grateful for the many students and colleagues I have had opportunity to work with over the years, some of which have contributed directly to this key.  The names of student authors and editors are listed at the bottom of the pages they worked on in some way, and in the list of contributors.  Some frequently-used names, like my own, may be abbreviated.  If no name is listed the author is Dave Cowles.
