This is a paperback edition of the 1990 edition of the second Volume of the author’s treatise on “The analysis of linear partial differential operators” (1990; Zbl 0687.35002). In the revised 1990 printing of Volume II, a number of minor flaws were corrected and the bibliography was updated and slightly enlarged. The paperback edition makes this volume more accessible.
Volume II is mainly devoted to partial differential operators with constant coefficients and convolution operators, with the exception of Chapter XIII which treats differential operators with constant strength. One of the main tools is Fourier Laplace transform We refer the reader to the excellent, detailed review [Grundlehren der Mathematischen Wissenschaften, 257. (Berlin Heidelberg-New York-Tokyo: Springer-Verlag) (1983; Zbl 0521.35002)].
The chapters in this volume, as the entire treatise, are excellently written, and make a rich, interesting and profitable reading. Since their publication these volumes have been a main reference for anyone working in the theory of linear partial different operators. Among many other authors, recent contributions on the theory of linear partial differential operators with constant coefficients and convolution operators on spaces of (ultra)distributions or spaces of real analytic functions have been obtained by C. Berenstein, R. Braun, P. Domanski, T. Gramchev, H. Komatsu, M. Langenbruch, R. Meise, A. Meril, N. Ortner, V. Palamodov, S. Pilipović, L. Rodino, D. C. Struppa, B. A. Taylor, D. Vogt and P. Wagner.
