Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"It provides a reasonably self-contained and very comprehensive account of all aspects of the subject. . The book contains more than 400 references to the literature, as well as a wealth of applications to physics (general relativity). Written by two of the main contributors to the field this comprehensive presentation is certain to be the standard work for the foreseeable future." (M. Kunzinger, Monatshefte für Mathematik, Vol. 167 (1), July, 2012)
