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
