Complex analysis is a classic and central area of mathematics, which is studies and exploited in a range of important fields, from number theory to engineering. Introduction to Complex Analysis was first published in 1985, and for this much-awaited second edition the text has been considerably expanded, while retaining the style of the original. More detailed presentation is given of elementary topics, to reflect the knowledge base of current students. Exercise sets have been substantially revised and enlarged, with carefully graded exercises at the end of each chapter.
Introduction to integration provides a unified account of integration theory, giving a practical guide to the Lebesgue integral and its uses, with a wealth of illustrative examples and exercises. The book begins with a simplified Lebesgue-style integral (in lieu of the more traditional Riemann integral), intended for a first course in integration. This suffices for elementary applications, and serves as an introduction to the core of the book. The final chapters present selected applications, mostly drawn from Fourier analysis. The emphasis throughout is on integrable functions rather than on measure. The book is designed primarily as an undergraduate or introductory graduate textbook. It is similar in style and level to Priestley's Introduction to complex analysis, for which it provides a companion volume, and is aimed at both pure and applied mathematicians. Prerequisites are the rudiments of integral calculus and a first course in real analysis.
This book presents a straightforward and concise introduction to elementary complex analysis. The emphasis is on those aspects of the theory that are important in other branches of mathematics, and no prior knowledge of topology is assumed. Basic techniques are explained and the major theorems are presented, helping readers to gain an understanding of the theoretical as well as practical applications. In addition, this revised edition includes many exercises that will aid undergraduates wishing to gain a firm understanding of the subject.

This volume contains the proceedings of the Special Session on Several Complex Variables, which was held during the first USA-Uzbekistan Conference on Analysis and Mathematical Physics from May 20–23, 2014, at California State University, Fullerton. This volume covers a wide variety of topics in pluripotential theory, symplectic geometry and almost complex structures, integral formulas, holomorphic extension, and complex dynamics. In particular, the reader will find articles on Lagrangian submanifolds and rational convexity, multidimensional residues, S-parabolic Stein manifolds, Segre varieties, and the theory of quasianalytic functions.
One of the ways in which topology has influenced other branches of mathematics in the past few decades is by putting the study of continuity and convergence into a general setting. This book introduces metric and topological spaces by describing some of that influence. The aim is to move gradually from familiar real analysis to abstract topological spaces. The book is aimed primarily at the second-year mathematics student, and numerous exercises are included.
This book is intended as a textbook for a first course in the theory of functions of one complex variable for students who are mathematically mature enough to understand and execute E - 8 arguments. The actual pre requisites for reading this book are quite minimal; not much more than a stiff course in basic calculus and a few facts about partial derivatives. The topics from advanced calculus that are used (e.g., Leibniz's rule for differ entiating under the integral sign) are proved in detail. Complex Variables is a subject which has something for all mathematicians. In addition to having applications to other parts of analysis, it can rightly claim to be an ancestor of many areas of mathematics (e.g., homotopy theory, manifolds). This view of Complex Analysis as "An Introduction to Mathe matics" has influenced the writing and selection of subject matter for this book. The other guiding principle followed is that all definitions, theorems, etc.
This volume highlights the main results of the research performed within the network “Harmonic and Complex Analysis and its Applications” (HCAA), which was a five-year (2007–2012) European Science Foundation Programme intended to explore and to strengthen the bridge between two scientific communities: analysts with broad backgrounds in complex and harmonic analysis and mathematical physics, and specialists in physics and applied sciences. It coordinated actions for advancing harmonic and complex analysis and for expanding its application to challenging scientific problems. Particular topics considered by this Programme included conformal and quasiconformal mappings, potential theory, Banach spaces of analytic functions and their applications to the problems of fluid mechanics, conformal field theory, Hamiltonian and Lagrangian mechanics, and signal processing. This book is a collection of surveys written as a result of activities of the Programme and will be interesting and useful for professionals and novices in analysis and mathematical physics, as well as for graduate students. Browsing the volume, the reader will undoubtedly notice that, as the scope of the Programme is rather broad, there are many interrelations between the various contributions, which can be regarded as different facets of a common theme.
This volume contains the proceedings of the CRM Workshop on Invariant Subspaces of the Shift Operator, held August 26-30, 2013, at the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques, Université de Montréal, Montréal, Quebec, Canada. The main theme of this volume is the invariant subspaces of the shift operator (or its adjoint) on certain function spaces, in particular, the Hardy space, Dirichlet space, and de Branges-Rovnyak spaces. These spaces, and the action of the shift operator on them, have turned out to be a precious tool in various questions in analysis such as function theory (Bieberbach conjecture, rigid functions, Schwarz-Pick inequalities), operator theory (invariant subspace problem, composition operator), and systems and control theory. Of particular interest is the Dirichlet space, which is one of the classical Hilbert spaces of holomorphic functions on the unit disk. From many points of view, the Dirichlet space is an interesting and challenging example of a function space. Though much is known about it, several important open problems remain, most notably the characterization of its zero sets and of its shift-invariant subspaces. This book is co-published with the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques.
This textbook provides a readable, though rigorous, introduction to the differentiation and integration of functions of several complex variables. In addition to presenting the classical theory of the subject, the author includes informal explanations of many proofs along with numerous exercises and problems that will help readers gain an in-depth understanding of the subject. Students are not assumed to have more background than a standard first course in calculus of one variable. Key concepts that are introduced include the composition of functions of several variables, compactness, uniform continuity, and connectivity. The author goes on to develop the theories of differentiation and integration, including Taylor's theorem, Lagrange's multipliers, the implicit function theory, inverse function theorem, iterated integration, improper integrals, and the change of variable theorem for integrals. As a special feature, the author offers a logically sound treatment of partial differentiation in Euler's notation. The book concludes with an indication of how the subject may be further developed. With its clear style and fresh approach, this text provides a useful bridge between the elementary calculus of one variable and the theory of functions in abstract spaces.
