Based on seven lecture series given by leading experts at a summer school at Peking University, in Beijing, in 1984. this book surveys recent developments in the areas of harmonic analysis most closely related to the theory of singular integrals, real-variable methods, and applications to several complex variables and partial differential equations. The different lecture series are closely interrelated; each contains a substantial amount of background material, as well as new results not previously published. The contributors to the volume are R. R. Coifman and Yves Meyer, Robert Fcfferman, Carlos K. Kenig, Steven G. Krantz, Alexander Nagel, E. M. Stein, and Stephen Wainger.
"This book's great strength is the analytical care with which Kavka addresses Hobbes's theories. He organizes the material by major issues, and his argument builds from chapter to chapter. The whole is a model commentary on a great philosopher's work."--Russell Hardin, University of Chicago
