 Translated from the fourth German edition by F. Steinhardt, with an expanded Bibliography. Reviews "The author presents, in a thorough and painstaking manner, the fundamentals of the principal topics which arise in the theory of ... conformal representation ... The style is lucid and clear and the material well arranged ... The pedagogical excellence of the book is particularly to be recommended. It is an excellent text."  Bulletin of the AMS "The first book in English to give an elementary, readable account of the Riemann Mapping Theorem and the distortion theorems and uniformisation problem with which it is connected ... Presented in very attractive and readable form."  Mathematical Gazette "Engineers will profitably use this book for its accurate exposition."  Applied Mechanics Reviews "An excellent book. It contains sufficient [information] in the first four chapters to satisfy all the needs of students who wish to study only the usual transformations, and many interesting details are given that are rarely to be found elsewhere. The final chapter will appeal to those readers whose interests are in very general problems, and here also is collected material that is not readily accessible elsewhere."
