View: 3823This volume contains the proceedings of the Sixth International Conference on Complex Analysis and Dynamical Systems, held from May 19–24, 2013, in Nahariya, Israel, in honor of David Shoikhet's sixtieth birthday. The papers range over a wide variety of topics in complex analysis, quasiconformal mappings, and complex dynamics. Taken together, the articles provide the reader with a panorama of activity in these areas, drawn by a number of leading figures in the field. They testify to the continued vitality of the interplay between classical and modern analysis. The companion volume (Contemporary Mathematics, Volume 653) is devoted to partial differential equations, differential geometry, and radon transforms.
The Ahlfors-Bers Colloquium, October 18-21, 2001, University of Connecticut at Storrs
Author: William Abikoff,Andrew Haas
Publisher: American Mathematical Soc.
View: 7162This proceedings volume reflects the 2001 Ahlfors-Bers Colloquium held at the University of Connecticut (Storrs). This conference began nearly a half century ago with a tradition based on profound mathematics, wide-ranging interests, personal involvement, and scholarship. Once led by Lipman Bers and Lars Ahlfors, the core of this tradition unfolded around geometric function theory. Talks at the colloquium were devoted to various aspects of complex analysis, including Teichmuller spaces, quasiconformal mappings, and geometric function theory. The book is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in complex analysis.
Proceedings of the Warwick Workshop, September 11–14, 2001

View: 3434The subject of Kleinian groups and hyperbolic 3-manifolds is currently undergoing explosively fast development, with many old problems and conjectures close to resolution. This volume, proceedings of the Warwick workshop in September 2001, contains expositions of many of these breakthroughs including Minsky's lectures on the first half of the proof of the Ending Lamination Conjecture, the Bers Density Conjecture by Brock and Bromberg, the Tameness Conjecture by Kleineidam and Souto, the state of the art in cone manifolds by Hodgson and Kerckhoff, and the counter example to Thurston's K=2 conjecture by Epstein, Marden and Markovic. It also contains Jørgensen's famous paper 'On pairs of once punctured tori' in print for the first time. The excellent collection of papers here will appeal to graduate students, who will find much here to inspire them, and established researchers who will find this valuable as a snapshot of current research.

View: 8577Pluripotential theory is a recently developed non-linear complex counterpart of classical potential theory. Its main area of application is multidimensional complex analysis. The central part of the pluripotential theory is occupied by maximal plurisubharmonic functions and the generalized complex Monge-Ampere operator. The interplay between these two concepts provides the focal point of this monograph, which contains an up-to-date account of the developments from the large volume of recent work in this area. A substantial proportion of the work is devoted to classical properties of subharmonic and plurisubharmonic functions, which makes the pluripotential theory available for the first time to a wide audience of analysts.
a mathematical study of regular structures
Author: Ulf Grenander
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
View: 7806The aim of pattern theory is to create mathematical knowledge representations of complex systems, analyze the mathematical properties of the resulting regular structures, and to apply them to practically occurring patterns in nature and the man-made world. Starting from an algebraic formulation of such representations they are studied in terms of their topological, dynamical and probabilistic aspects. Patterns are expressed through their typical behavior as well as through their variability around their typical form. Employing the representations (regular structures) algorithms are derived for the understanding, recognition, and restoration of observed patterns. The algorithms are investigated through computer experiments. The book is intended for statisticians and mathematicians with an interest in image analysis and pattern theory.
