Being active in a somewhat different area (www.polygrama.com) mainly, I
don't quite feel qualified to answer your question. I assume Kosar would be
a good starting point. "Kosar" would imply not only his book but both the
literature he quotes from and the patents he refers to.
By the way I scanned the whole book to my computer (resulting in a slightly
messed up pagination). So I might be in the position to send out the whole
thing to those interested. That would be two multi-paged TIF files (5.8MB
and 4.6MB large)...
