Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This is the second edition of Shubin's already classical book. It provides a fairly short, highly readable nice introduction to microlocal analysis, with emphasis on its application to spectral theory ... . For anybody who holds a first course in PDO and FIO we highly recommend ... . The book is very well written, in simple and direct language. From the very basics at the beginning, the reader reaches a fairly advanced graduate level at the end." (Tibor Odor, Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum, Vol. 73, 2007)
