 This book is a translation, with corrections and an updated bibliography, of Morimoto's 1976 book on the theory of hyperfunctions originally written in Japanese. Since the time that Sato established the theory of hyperfunctions, there have been many important applications to such areas as pseudodifferential operators and Smatrices. Assuming as little background as possible on the part of the reader, Morimoto covers the basic notions of the theory, from hyperfunctions of one variable to Sato's fundamental theorem. This book provides an excellent introduction to this important field of research. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians.
