New Features in Version 01.2

The positive response to version 01.1 motivated me to put some more effort in this update 01.2. Besides the elimination of quite a few errors from the text, the handbook underwent a major technical restructuring. To improve navigation, we use a layout based on Frames, Javascript and some Style Sheet applications.

Please note that I tried to keep things as short and comprehensive as possible. Those who want to know more may refer to the IBP handbooks of Downing & Rigler (1984), Eleftheriou (2013)MacFayden (1970) which decribe many approaches and their theoretical background in more detail. Other helpful sources are Pauly (1984c) or software and user guide of FISAT as well as other software and data banks.
