It is a great joy to see this book the first edition of which appeared in 1968, see Zbl 0192.538, available again after being out of print for so many years. It has stimulated a great deal of work over the past fifteen years, both in Fourier series and in random processes and the task of distilling a second edition from the multitude of new results is far from easy. Most of the new material concerns random processes and the 5 new chapters cover Hausdorff measures and dimensions, random translates and coverings, boundedness and continuity of Gaussian processes, path properties of Brownian motion, and Hausdorff measures, level sets and occupation densities for fractional Brownian processes. There are also new sections in original chapters, but most of the original material remains. The second edition is about 50% larger than the first and is a very readable account of the interplay between classical real function theory and stochastic processes.
