About the Authors
  • When it was first published this was the first general account of Hausdorff measures, a subject that has important applications in many fields of mathematics. There are three chapters: the first contains an introduction to measure theory, paying particular attention to the study of non-s-finite measures. The second develops the most general aspects of the theory of Hausdorff measures, and the third gives a general survey of applications of Hausdorff measures followed by detailed accounts of two special applications. This edition has a foreword by Kenneth Falconer outlining the developments in measure theory since this book first appeared. Based on lectures given by the author at University College London, this book is ideal for graduate mathematicians with no previous knowledge of the subject, but experts in the field will also want a copy for their shelves.
