of this manual now appears in the Springer-Verlag book

First, many thanks are due to Laci Ladányi who worked with me on the development of an early precursor of SYMPHONY called COMPSys and who taught me much of what I know about programming. Many thanks are due also to Marta Esö, who wrote a draft of this manual for what was then COMPSys. Thanks are also due to Menal Guzelsoy, who was been instrumental in the development of SYMPHONY since version 4.0 and who helped update this manual. Thanks to Matthew Galati and Ondrej Medek, who also helped with the development of SYMPHONY. Finally, thanks to Leslie Trotter, William Cook, Cornell University, Rice University, Lehigh University, the National Science Foundation, and the state of Texas, all of whom have supported the development of SYMPHONY.
