Composition Operators on Hardy-Orlicz Spaces

The authors investigate composition operators on Hardy-Orlicz spaces when the Orlicz function \Psi grows rapidly: compactness, weak compactness, to be p-summing, order bounded, \ldots, and show how these notions behave according to the growth of \Psi. They introduce an adapted version of Carleson measure. They construct various examples showing that their results are essentially sharp. In the last part, they study the case of Bergman...

In this, the first comprehensive history of creationism in Eur...

The Necessity of Theater

What is unique and essential about theater? What separates it from other arts? Do we need "theater" in some fundamental way? The art of theater, as Paul Woodruff says in this elegant and unique book, is as necessary - and as powerful - as language itself.
