About the Authors
  • Written by a master of the subject, this text will be appreciated by students and experts for the way it develops the classical theory of functions of a complex variable in a clear and straightforward manner. In general, the approach taken here emphasises geometrical aspects of the theory in order to avoid some of the topological pitfalls associated with this subject. Thus, Cauchy's integral formula is first proved in a topologically simple case from which the author deduces the basic properties of holomorphic functions. Starting from the basics, students are led on to the study of conformal mappings, Riemann's mapping theorem, analytic functions on a Riemann surface, and ultimately the Riemann–Roch and Abel theorems. Profusely illustrated, and with plenty of examples, and problems (solutions to many of which are included), this book should be a stimulating text for advanced courses in complex analysis.

    • Written by a master of the subject
    • Straightforward presentation avoids topological diffculties
    • Goes from basics to advanced topics such as Riemann surfaces and Riemann-Roch theorem

    'While most of the material included in the first part could be used in a basic course on complex analysis, the whole book could serve as a text for an advanced course on Riemann surfaces. The book contains many pictures (helping to build geometric intuition) and problems (elementary and advanced). The book could be very helpful for students as well as for experts in the field.'

    Kunihiko Kodaira
    Kunihiko Kodaira (1915–97) worked in many areas including harmonic integrals, algebraic geometry and the classification of compact complex analytic surfaces. He held faculty positions at many universities including the University of Tokyo, Harvard University, Massachusetts, Stanford University, California, and The Johns Hopkins University, and the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. He was awarded a Fields medal in 1954 and a Wolf Prize in 1984.
