About the Author

Larry Guth, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA.


Some of the greatest advances in geometric combinatorics and harmonic analysis in recent years have been accomplished using the polynomial method. Larry Guth gives a readable and timely exposition of this important topic, which is destined to influence a variety of critical developments in combinatorics, harmonic analysis and other areas for many years to come."
-Alex Iosevich, University of Rochester, author of The Erdos Distance Problem and A View from the Top.

""It is extremely challenging to present a current (and still very active) research area in a manner that a good mathematics undergraduate would be able to grasp after a reasonable effort, but the author is quite successful in this task, and this would be a book of value to both undergraduates and graduates."
- Terence Tao, University of California, Los Angeles, author of An Epsilon of Room I, II and Hilbert's Fifth Problem and Related Topics

"In the 273 page long book, a huge number of concepts are presented, and many results concerning them are formulated and proved. The book is a perfect presentation of the theme."
-Bela Uhrin, Mathematical Reviews
