Overview

This is the fourth edition of Serge Lang's Complex Analysis. The first part of the book covers the basic material of complex analysis, and the second covers many special topics, such as the Riemann Mapping Theorem, the gamma function, and analytic continuation. Power series methods are used more systematically than in other texts, and the proofs using these methods often shed more light on the results than the standard proofs do. The first part of Complex Analysis is suitable for an introductory course on the undergraduate level, and the additional topics covered in the second part give the instructor of a graduate course a great deal of flexibility in structuring a more advanced course.

In this new edition of a standard textbook, new exercises have been added, in addition to more material on the Borel theorem, Picard's theorem, and J.D. Newman's proof of the prime number theorem. The treatment of gamma and zeta functions has been expanded and an appendix has been added which includes material not usually included in standard texts. The first part of the book is an introduction to complex analysis, while the second covers many special topics which may be used in an advanced course. Annotation c.
