This volume comprises the proceedings of a conference on the geometric analysis of several complex variables held at POSTECH in June 1997. The conference was attended by scientists and students from around the globe.
Each of the five plenary speakers at the conference gave a short course on a topic of current interest in the field. The lecture write-ups contain cogent and accessible information intended for a broad audience. The volume also includes a tutorial in several complex variables given by Kim and Krantz at the conference. This tutorial is geared toward helping the novice to understand the rest of the material in the book.
The bibliographies of the papers give students and young mathematicians a valuable resource for future learning on the topic. This book provides a substantial overview on areas of current activity. Required background for understanding the text is a solid undergraduate education in mathematics and familiarity with first-year graduate studies in real and complex analysis. Some exposure to geometry would be helpful. The book is also suitable for use as a supplemental course text.
Graduate students, educators, experienced and novice research mathematicians interested in real and complex analysis.
