 This volume contains the proceedings of a Symposium on Complex Analysis, held at the University of Wisconsin at Madison in June 1991 on the occasion of the retirement of Walter Rudin. During the week of the conference, a group of about 200 mathematicians from many nations gathered to discuss recent developments in complex analysis and to celebrate Rudin's long and productive career. Among the main subjects covered are applications of complex analysis to operator theory, polynomial convexity, holomorphic mappings, boundary behavior of holomorphic functions, function theory on the unit disk and ball, and some aspects of the theory of partial differential equations related to complex analysis. Containing papers by some of the world's leading experts in these subjects, this book reports on current directions in complex analysis and presents an excellent mixture of the analytic and geometric aspects of the theory. Readership Advanced graduate students and researchers in complex analysis and related subjects. Reviews "Among the authors are some of the world's leading experts. Therefore this volume is an excellent report on current directions in complex analysis. It is a tribute to Walter Rudin in so far as much of the work contained in this book makes contact with work that he has done over the last forty years."
