On this page you will find comments, notes and data to the chapters in the book. You can also find the errata for each of the chapters (thank you so much to those of you who have contributed so far (especially: Nicolai Gayle Nygaard, DONG Energy, now Ørsted; Wim Bierbooms, TU Delft), please do keep them coming!). This will be updated as more becomes available.
