About the Authors
  • This book focuses on the major applications of martingales to the geometry of Banach spaces, and a substantial discussion of harmonic analysis in Banach space valued Hardy spaces is also presented. It covers exciting links between super-reflexivity and some metric spaces related to computer science, as well as an outline of the recently developed theory of non-commutative martingales, which has natural connections with quantum physics and quantum information theory. Requiring few prerequisites and providing fully detailed proofs for the main results, this self-contained study is accessible to graduate students with a basic knowledge of real and complex analysis and functional analysis. Chapters can be read independently, with each building from the introductory notes, and the diversity of topics included also means this book can serve as the basis for a variety of graduate courses.

    • A wide-ranging but self-contained treatment gathered in a single volume
    • Starts from scratch, making the subject accessible to mathematics graduate students

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This book is devoted to various aspects affirming the importance of martingale techniques throughout the development of modern Banach space theory. … The book is self-contained and is quite accessible with only a basic functional analysis background. In particular, it does not assume any prior knowledge of scalar-valued martingale theory. … It is this reviewer's opinion that this excellent book will appeal to a wide audience and will become a classic reference in martingale theory.' Narcisse Randrianantoanina, Mathematical Reviews
