In order to give a reasonably complete and self-contained introduction to the subject, most of the proofs have been presented in great detail thereby making the development understandable to a very wide audience. Exercises have been supplied at the end of each chapter. Some of these are meant to extend the theory slightly while others should serve to test the reader's understanding of the material presented. The first chapter and part of the second give a brief review of classical Fourier analysis and present concepts which will subsequently be generalized to a more abstract framework. The next five chapters present an introduction to commutative Banach algebras, general topological spaces, and topological groups. The remaining chapters contain some of the measure theoretic background, including the Haar integral, and an extension of the concepts of the first two chapters to Fourier analysis on locally compact topological abelian groups.
