Part of the Contemporary Mathematicians book series (CM)


The mathematical works of Fritz John whose deep and original ideas have had a great influence on the development of various fields in mathematical analysis are ma de available with these volumes. His works are certainly well known to the experts, but knowledge of his contributions may not have spread as widely as it should have. For example, the concept of functions of bounded mean oscillations plays a central role in harmonic analysis today, but it is perhaps less known that this class of functions was introduced by John as early as 1961, motivated by his work in elasticity theory. With the publication of this collection, a wider circle of mathematicians will become familiar with, and appreciate, the fertile ideas of Fritz John.
