Robert Young was born in New York City in 1944. He received his B.A. from Colby College in 1965 and his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in 1971. He currently teaches at Oberlin College where he holds the James F. Clark Chair in Mathematics. In addition to his work in nonharmonic Fourier series, he is the author of Excursions in Calculus: An Interplay of the Continuous and the Discrete.

From Book News, Inc. The theory of nonharmonic Fourier series is concerned with the completeness and expansion properties of sets of complex exponential functions. This text for graduate students and mathematicians provides an introduction to some of the classical and modern theories within this broad field. Young (mathematics, Oberlin College) discusses such topics as the stability of bases in Banach spaces, estimates for canonical products, and moment sequences in Hilbert space.Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
