About the Author

Gerald B. Folland received his Ph.D in mathematics from Princeton University, New Jersey, USA in 1971. After two years at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York, USA, he joined the faculty of the University of Washington, Seattle, USA, where he is now professor emeritus of mathematics. He has written a number of research and expository articles on harmonic analysis and its applications, and he is the author of eleven textbooks and research monographs.
