From the Publisher
Rather than using the traditional approach of presenting complex analysis as a self-contained subject, the authors demonstrate how it can be connected with calculus, algebra, geometry, topology, and other parts of analysis. They emphasize how complex analysis is a natural outgrowth of multivariable real calculus by comparing and contrasting complex variable theory with real variable theory. The text relates the subject matter to concepts that students already know and motivates these ideas with numerous examples. Special topics in later chapters deal with current research including the Bergman kernel function, Hp spaces, and the Bell-Ligocka approach to proving smoothness to the boundary of biholomorphic mappings. Features many examples as well as 75 illustrations, which is provided through exercise sets.
