Wavelets are a recently developed tool for the analysis and synthesis of functions; their simplicity, versatility and precision makes them valuable in many branches of applied mathematics. The book begins with an introduction to the theory of wavelets and limits itself to the detailed construction of various orthonormal bases of wavelets. A second part centers on a criterion for the L2-boundedness of singular integral operators: the T(b)-theorem. It contains a full proof of that theorem. It contains a full proof of that theorem, and a few of the most striking applications (mostly to the Cauchy integral). The third part is a survey of recent attempts to understand the geometry of subsets of Rn on which analogues of the Cauchy kernel define bounded operators. The book was conceived for a graduate student, or researcher, with a primary interest in analysis (and preferably some knowledge of harmonic analysis and seeking an understanding of some of the new "real-variable methods" used in harmonic analysis.

The wavelet transform can be seen as a synthesis of ideas that have emerged since the 1960s in mathematics, physics, and electrical engineering. The basic idea is to use a family of ``building blocks'' to represent in an efficient way the object at hand, be it a function, an operator, a signal, or an image. The building blocks themselves come in different ``sizes'' which can describe different features with different resolutions. The papers in this book attempt to give some theoretical and technical shape to this intuitive picture of wavelets and their uses. The papers collected here were prepared for an AMS Short Course on Wavelets and Applications, held at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in San Antonio in January 1993. Here readers will find general background on wavelets as well as more detailed views of specific techniques and applications. With contributions by some of the top experts in the field, this book provides an excellent introduction to this important and growing area of research.

This book represents an expanded account of lectures delivered at the NSF-CBMS Regional Conference on Singular Integral Operators, held at the University of Montana in the summer of 1989. The lectures are concerned principally with developments in the subject related to the Cauchy integral on Lipschitz curves and the T(1) theorem. The emphasis is on real-variable techniques, with a discussion of analytic capacity in one complex variable included as an application. The author has presented here a synthesized exposition of a body of results and techniques. Much of the book is introductory in character and intended to be accessible to the nonexpert, but a variety of readers should find the book useful.

All papers in this volume are original (fully refereed) research reports by participants of the special program on Harmonic Analysis held in the Nankai Institute of Mathematics. The main themes include: Wavelets, Singular Integral Operators, Extemal Functions, H Spaces, Harmonic Analysis on Local Domains and Lie Groups, and so on. See also :G.
