 This book contains contributions by an impressive list of leading mathematicians. The articles include highlevel survey and research papers exploring contemporary issues in geometric analysis, differential geometry, and several complex variables. Many of the articles will provide graduate students with a good entry point into important areas of modern research. The material is intended for researchers and graduate students interested in several complex variables and complex geometry.
