Synopses & Reviews
This volume surveys the fields of approximation theory and functional analysis. Compiled in honor of G.G. Lorenz, "The Father of Modern Approximation Theory", it consists of invited papers representing the most up-to-date research by leading mathmaticians in these fields. The editor has emphasized the survey character of major contributions to make this book of interest to a wider audience of graduate students and research mathematicians.
Review
This volume was compiled in honor of G.G. Lorentz on the occasion of his eightieth birthday. It consists of twenty invited papers, mainly surveys in approxiamtion theory and functional analysis, the two fields to which he devoted much of his professional life. This book includes an autobiography of Lorentz, his publications and doctoral students.
