## Description

The book addresses many topics not usually in "second course in complex analysis" texts. It also contains multiple proofs of several central results, and it has a minor historical perspective.

## Key Features

- Proof of Bieberbach conjecture (after DeBranges)
- Material on asymptotic values
- Material on Natural Boundaries
- First four chapters are comprehensive
__introduction__to entire and metomorphic functions - First chapter (Riemann Mapping Theorem) takes up where "first courses" usually leave off

## Readership

This book is primarily intended for graduate students in mathematics
