but is it ?  On trying to compile it, I am told

	! Undefined control sequence.
	l.2     \[

P.S. I /was/ going to say that it would be far more
comprehensible if greater attention had been paid
to layout, but if -- as I suspect -- Paul Stanley
is using a speech synthesiser to examine the material,
then I am not sure that better layout would help.
