About this book

Several natural Lp spaces of analytic functions have been widely studied in the past few decades, including Hardy spaces, Bergman spaces, and Fock spaces. The terms “Hardy spaces” and “Bergman spaces” are by now standard and well established. But the term “Fock spaces” is a different story.

Numerous excellent books now exist on the subject of Hardy spaces. Several books about Bergman spaces, including some of the author’s, have also appeared in the past few decades. But there has been no book on the market concerning the Fock spaces. The purpose of this book is to fill that void, especially when many results in the subject are complete by now. This book presents important results and techniques summarized in one place, so that newcomers, especially graduate students, have a convenient reference to the subject.

This book contains proofs that are new and simpler than the existing ones in the literature. In particular, the book avoids the use of the Heisenberg group, the Fourier transform, and the heat equation. This helps to keep the prerequisites to a minimum. A standard graduate course in each of real analysis, complex analysis, and functional analysis should be sufficient preparation for the reader.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Excellent books exist in the literature on the theory of Hardy spaces … but no textbook concerning the theory of Fock spaces has appeared before. The purpose of the author is to fill this gap and provide to any researcher in the field or graduate students the appropriate place to find the results or the bibliographical references needed for their use. … author succeeds with his goal. … a great addition to the literature and in the future will become a classic in the field.” (Jordi Pau, Mathematical Reviews, January, 2013)

“This book is intended to provide a convenient reference to Fock spaces. … Each chapter ends with a series of exercises. The material is presented in a pedagogical way. The reference list contains 259 relevant items. This book is well written and it is a good reference for graduate students who are interested in Fock spaces.” (Atsushi Yamamori, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1262, 2013)
