Motivated by questions about which functions could be represented by Dirichlet series, Harald Bohr founded the theory of almost periodic functions in the 1920s. This beautiful exposition begins with a discussion of periodic functions before addressing the almost periodic case. An appendix discusses almost periodic functions of a complex variable. This is a beautiful exposition of the theory of ""Almost Periodic Functions"" written by the creator of that theory; translated by H. Cohn.
