Volume 2 is devoted to detailed study of generalized functions as linear functionals on appropriate spaces of smooth test functions. In Chapter 1, the authors introduce and study countable-normed linear topological spaces, laying out a general theoretical foundation for the analysis of spaces of generalized functions. The two most important classes of spaces of test functions are spaces of compactly supported functions and Schwartz spaces of rapidly decreasing functions. In Chapters 2 and 3 of the book, the authors transfer many results presented in Volume 1 to generalized functions corresponding to these more general spaces. Finally, Chapter 4 is devoted to the study of the Fourier transform; in particular, it includes appropriate versions of the Paley-Wiener theorem.
In Volume 3, applications of generalized functions to the Cauchy problem for systems of partial differential equations with constant coefficients are considered. The book includes the study of uniqueness classes of solutions of the Cauchy problem and the study of classes of functions where the Cauchy problem is well posed. The last chapter of this volume presents results related to spectral decomposition of differential operators related to generalized eigenfunctions.
The works in this series are addressed to advanced students and researchers in mathematics and theoretical physics. In addition, it can serve as a guide for lectures and seminars on a graduate level.
The series de Gruyter Studies in Mathematics was founded ca. 35 years ago by the late Professor Heinz Bauer and Professor Peter Gabriel with the aim to establish a series of monographs and textbooks of high standard, written by scholars with an international reputation presenting current fields of research in pure and applied mathematics.
While the editorial board of the Studies has changed with the years, the aspirations of the Studies are unchanged. In times of rapid growth of mathematical knowledge carefully written monographs and textbooks written by experts are needed more than ever, not least to pave the way for the next generation of mathematicians. In this sense the editorial board and the publisher of the Studies are devoted to continue the Studies as a service to the mathematical community.

This book gives an introduction to the study of
extremal Kähler metrics and in particular to the conjectural picture
relating the existence of extremal metrics on projective manifolds to
the stability of the underlying manifold in the sense of algebraic
geometry. The book addresses some of the basic ideas on both the
analytic and the algebraic sides of this picture. An overview is given
of much of the necessary background material, such as basic Kähler
geometry, moment maps, and geometric invariant theory. Beyond the basic
definitions and properties of extremal metrics, several highlights of
the theory are discussed at a level accessible to graduate students:
Yau's theorem on the existence of Kähler-Einstein metrics, the Bergman
kernel expansion due to Tian, Donaldson's lower bound for the Calabi
energy, and Arezzo-Pacard's existence theorem for constant scalar
curvature Kähler metrics on blow-ups.
