Except for unpublished manuscripts, every paper linked to from this page is only a preprint version of the cited published paper. The actual published version is probably somewhat different due to referees' remarks, editors' corrections, and additional author modifications. Only the published version should be considered authoritative. All quotes should be of the published version, and all citations should be to the published version.
