About the Author

Robert H. Wasserman is Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at Michigan State University, USA.


`Review from previous edition Clearly written and self-contained and, in particular, the author has succeeded in combining mathematical rigor with a certain degree of informality in a satisfactory way. As such, this work will certainly be appreciated by a wide audience.' Mathematical Reviews, August 1993
