This publication is an try to disguise the various salient good points of classical, one variable advanced functionality thought. The process is analytic, rather than geometric, however the equipment of all 3 of the relevant faculties (those of Cauchy, Riemann and Weierstrass) are constructed and exploited. The publication is going deeply into a number of themes (e.g. convergence concept and airplane topology), greater than is favourite in introductory texts, and vast bankruptcy notes provide the resources of the implications, hint traces of next improvement, make connections with different subject matters and supply feedback for additional studying. those are keyed to a bibliography of over 1300 books and papers, for every of which quantity and web page numbers of a evaluation in a single of the key reviewing journals is mentioned. those notes and bibliography could be of substantial price to the professional in addition to to the beginner. For the latter there are numerous references to such completely obtainable journals because the American Mathematical per month and L'Enseignement Math?matique. additionally, the particular necessities for analyzing the e-book are fairly modest; for instance, the exposition assumes no fore wisdom of manifold idea, and continuity of the Riemann map at the boundary is taken care of with no degree concept. "This is, i think, the 1st glossy accomplished treatise on its topic. the writer seems to have learn every thing, he proves every little thing and he has delivered to mild many attention-grabbing yet normally forgotten effects and techniques. The booklet will be at the table of every person who could ever are looking to see an evidence of something from the fundamental idea. ..."

(Zentralblatt f?r Mathematik) / "Professor Burckel is to be congratulated on writing such an outstanding textbook. ... this can be definitely a ebook to offer to a great pupil and he might revenue immensely from it. ..."
