By G. H. Hardy

From the PREFACE.

THE book of this tract has been not on time via quite a few factors, and i'm now forced to factor it with no Dr Riesz's assist in the ultimate correction of the proofs. This has at any fee, one virtue, that it offers me the possibility of announcing how awake i'm that no matter what price it possesses is due often to his contributions to it, and particularly to the very fact, that it includes the 1st systematic, account of his appealing conception of the summation of sequence by way of 'typical means'.

the duty of condensing any account of so wide a thought into the compass of 1 of those tracts has proved a very tricky one. Many very important theorems are acknowledged with no evidence, and plenty of info are left to the reader. i feel, even if, that our account is complete sufficient to function a consultant to different mathematicians discovering during this and allied matters. Such readers should be acquainted with Landau's *Handbuch der Lehre con der Verteilung der Primzahlen*, and may infrequently must be instructed how a lot we, in universal with all different investigators during this box, owe to the writings and to the non-public encouragement of its writer.
