Theorems are presented in a logical way and are carefully proved, making this a most useful book for students.


This magnificent textbook, translated from the Russian, was first published in 1965-1967. The book covers all aspects of the theory of functions of one complex variable. The chosen proofs give the student the best `feel' for the subject. The watchwords are clarity and straightforwardness. The author was a leading Soviet function-theorist: It is seldom that an expert of his stature puts himself so wholly at the service of the student. This book includes over 150 illustrations and 700 exercises.
