This book is a textbook for graduate or advanced undergraduate students in mathematics and (or) mathematical physics. It is not primarily aimed, therefore, at specialists (or those who wish to become specialists) in integra tion theory, Fourier theory and harmonic analysis, although even for these there might be some points of interest in the book (such as for example the simple remarks in Section 15). At many universities the students do not yet get acquainted with Lebesgue integration in their first and second year (or sometimes only with the first principles of integration on the real line ). The Lebesgue integral, however, is indispensable for obtaining a familiarity with Fourier series and Fourier transforms on a higher level; more so than by us ing only the Riemann integral. Therefore, we have included a discussion of integration theory - brief but with complete proofs - for Lebesgue measure in Euclidean space as well as for abstract measures. We give some emphasis to subjects of which an understanding is necessary for the Fourier theory in the later chapters. In view of the emphasis in modern mathematics curric ula on abstract subjects (algebraic geometry, algebraic topology, algebraic number theory) on the one hand and computer science on the other, it may be useful to have a textbook available (not too elementary and not too spe cialized) on the subjects - classical but still important to-day - which are mentioned in the title of this book.Reseña del editor:
The first part in this thorough textbook is devoted to continuity properties, culminating in the theorems of Korovikin and Stone-Weierstrass. The last part consists of extensions and applications of the Fourier theory, for example the Wilbraham-Gibbs phenomenon, the Hausdorff-Young theorem, the Poisson sum formula and the heat and wave equations. Since the Lebesgue integral is indispensible for obtaining familiarity with Fourier series and Fourier transforms on a somewhat higher level, the book contains a brief survey with complete proofs of abstract integration theory. The compact and comprehensive exposition is rounded off by well-choosen exercises. The book is of interest to advanced undergraduate and graduate students. This book is a textbook on continuity properties, integration theory and Fourier theory for graduate or advanced undergraduate students in mathematics or mathematical physics. The discussion of abstract in integration is brief, but with complete proofs.
