Note: I liked my first draft of this article better than the one which
was published. That version was longer and did a better job of introducing
ideas (like Grasmmannian manifolds) which were cut out of the final version
at the editor's request. It is available from the arXiv as https://arXiv.org/abs/math-ph/9811008v2.

(Funny Note: I wrote this paper in English and submitted it to this
Russian journal which translated it into Russian for the original
edition of the journal. Interestingly, when the American Mathematical
Society summarized the paper in Math Reviews, they translated the Russian title back into English and ended up with something just slightly different than our original title!)
