Synopses & Reviews
Awarded the American Mathematical Society Steele Prize for Mathematical Exposition, this Introduction, first published in 1968, has firmly established itself as a classic text. Yitzhak Katznelson demonstrates the central ideas of harmonic analysis and provides a stock of examples to foster a clear understanding of the theory. This new edition has been revised to include several new sections and a new appendix.
"Katznelson's An Introduction to Harmonic Analysis is, of course, a classic...So the first thing to say is 'thank you,' to Cambridge for doing this new edition, and to Prof. Katznelson for undertaking the task of updating his book...It is an ambitious book, moving all the way from Fourier series to Banach algebras and analysis on locally compact abelian groups. It is densely but clearly written, with the occasional flash of wit."
MAA Reviews, Fernando Q. Gouvea
A reissue of a classic text on a central topic.
First published in 1968, An Introduction to Harmonic Analysis has firmly established itself as a classic text and a favorite for students and experts alike. Professor Katznelson starts the book with an exposition of classical Fourier series. The aim is to demonstrate the central ideas of harmonic analysis in a concrete setting, and to provide a stock of examples to foster a clear understanding of the theory. This new edition has been revised by the author, to include several new sections and a new appendix.
