This self-contained text provides an introduction to modern harmonic analysis in the context in which it is actually applied, in particular, through complex function theory and partial differential equations. It takes the novice mathematical reader from the rudiments of harmonic analysis (Fourier series) to the Fourier transform, pseudodifferential operators, and finally to Heisenberg analysis.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

“This is an ambitious introduction to a particular direction in modern harmonic analysis. It presents harmonic analysis in vitro – in a context in which it is actually applied complex variables and partial differential equations. This will make the learning experience more meaningful for graduate students who are just beginning to forge a path of research.” (Vasily A. Chernecky, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1171, 2009)

“Writing a 350 page account on harmonic analysis … is no easy task and making the presentation suitable for graduate students even less so. … it is indeed the purpose of the book under review … . Krantz has done an admirable job in condensing the ideas of Stein’s tract into a highly readily text suitable for a wide variety of readers. … It is done with such an enthusiasm … that even seasoned mathematicians should be able to enjoy the book.” (Troels Roussau Johansen, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2011 a)

“The text is very well organized: each chapter begins with an introductory Prologue, each section with a Capsule giving a quick preview of the material, and each key theorem is preceded by a Prelude providing motivation and putting the result in an adequate context. … The book will be useful for advanced courses on harmonic analysis, singular integrals, as well as reference text for researchers in various domains of analysis, both pure and applied.” (Gabriela Kohr, Studia Universitatis Babes-Bolyai, Mathematica, Vol. LV (4), December, 2010)
