 This volume is a collection of papers reflecting the conference held in Nahariya, Israel in honor of Professor Lawrence Zalcman's sixtieth birthday. The papers, many written by leading authorities, range widely over classical complex analysis of one and several variables, differential equations, and integral geometry. Topics covered include, but are not limited to, these areas within the theory of functions of one complex variable: complex dynamics, elliptic functions, Kleinian groups, quasiconformal mappings, Tauberian theorems, univalent functions, and value distribution theory. Altogether, the papers in this volume provide a comprehensive overview of activity in complex analysis at the beginning of the twentyfirst century and testify to the continuing vitality of the interplay between classical and modern analysis. It is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in computer analysis and differential geometry. This book is copublished with BarIlan University. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in computer analysis and differential geometry. Table of Contents  M. Agranovsky and D. Shoikhet  Lawrence Zalcman at sixty
