Table of Contents

I. Analytic Functions of One Complex Variable. II. Elementary Properties of Functions of Several Complex Variables. III. Applications to Commutative Banach Algebras. IV. L2 Estimates and Existence Theorems for the Operator. V. Stein Manifolds. VI. Local Properties of Analytic Functions. VII. Coherent Analytic Sheaves on Stein Manifolds. Bibliography. Index.


A number of monographs of various aspects of complex analysis in several variables have appeared since the first version of this book was published, but none of them uses the analytic techniques based on the solution of the Neumann Problem as the main tool.

The additions made in this third, revised edition place additional stress on results where these methods are particularly important. Thus, a section has been added presenting Ehrenpreis' ``fundamental principle'' in full. The local arguments in this section are closely related to the proof of the coherence of the sheaf of germs of functions vanishing on an analytic set. Also added is a discussion of the theorem of Siu on the Lelong numbers of plurisubharmonic functions. Since the L2 techniques are essential in the proof and plurisubharmonic functions play such an important role in this book, it seems natural to discuss their main singularities.
