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
