The book presents the theory of multiple trigonometric sums constructed by the authors. Following a unified approach, the authors obtain estimates for these sums similar to the classical I. M. Vinogradov´s estimates and use them to solve several problems in analytic number theory. They investigate trigonometric integrals, which are often encountered in physics, mathematical statistics, and analysis, and in addition they present purely arithmetic results concerning the solvability of equations in integers.

"The book is written very carefully and contains at the beginning of each chapter an introduction which is very well readable. It will certainly replace the former monographies on this theme."J. Schoissengeier in: Monatshefte für Mathematik 1/2006 "The book will be useful for a wide range of mathematicians."EMS newsletter 9/2005
