Lipa's Legacy - Jozef Dodziuk and Linda Keen

In the Tradition of Ahlfors and Bers: Proceedings of the First Ahlfors-Bers Colloquium - Irwin Kra and Bernard Maskit

One of the founders of a major modern branch of complex analysis, Lipman Bers made fundamental contributions to the modern theory of Kleinian groups and moduli of Riemann surfaces. This volume is a collection of Bers' papers in complex analysis. Included are seminal papers in the field and articles by the editors and other colleagues discussing Bers' achievements and influence on the mathematical developments of the second half of the 20th century. Lists of his students, his publications, and reprints of hard-to-find papers are included.


Graduate students, research mathematicians and physicists working in complex analysis.


"In bringing out this fine two-volume set, the editors have made a valuable contribution to the further development of complex analysis."

-- Mathematical Reviews

"The two volumes document the historical development and progress in research on the subjects made by one of its outstanding figures during almost half a century, with intimate connections to the work of others, including Ahlfors, I.N. Vekua, and the many students of Bers."

-- Zentralblatt MATH
