This book provides the most comprehensive mathematical treatment to date of the Feynman path integral and Feynman's operational calculus. It is accessible to mathematicians, mathematical physicists and theoretical physicists. Including new results and much material previously only available in the research literature, this book discusses both the mathematics and physics background that motivate the study of the Feynman path integral and Feynman's operational calculus, and also provides more detailed proofs of the central results.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review from previous edition: Accessible, even for beginners ... this book should serve as a standard reference for anybody interested in the mathematical theory of Feynman path integrals and the related operational calculus. * EMS *
Review from previous edition: The last chapter deals with other work related to the book's topics, ranging from alternative approaches to the path integral (so-called Fresnel integrals) to a very readable survey of the influence of Feynman integrals on contempary mathematics and physics. In particular, the authors discuss low dimensional topology and Edward Witten's approach to knot invariants, and they end with a discussion of Maxim Kontsevich's work on deformation quantization. I would recommend this book to serious students of the subject. * Physics Today *
The second one [part of the final chapter] is a most welcome presentation of recent extensions and applications of Feynman's approach to a whole range of physical models of major interest ... it is here that the power of Feynman's approach of inspiring both mathematicans and physicists is best evidentiated. * Zentrablatt Mathematik *
