In my thesis I have a part where I provide all the algorithms which I have developed. I want to introduce this part with a chapter containing the literature review regarding these algorithms, introducing the hardware I have worked with, discussing the input data for the algorithms and some other stuff (see below)...
Do you think I can use "Preliminary Considerations" as title for this chapter? I have some doubts due to the alternative meaning of "preliminary" which I would describe as "uncomplete" or "sketchy". Although "Preliminary Considerations" seems to be a proper title, "preliminary" has the taste of "has to be completed in further work".
I hope this makes sense to you.
