MA 328: Introduction to Several Complex Variables

Credits: 3:0

Preliminaries: Holomorphic functions in $C^n$ : definition , the generalized Cauchy integral formula, holomorphic functions: power series development(s), circular and Reinhardt domains, analytic continuation : basic theory and comparisons with the one- variable theory.

Convexity theory: Analytic continuation: the role of convexity, holomorphic convexity, plurisub-harmonic functions, the Levi problem and the role of the d-bar equation.

The d- bar equation: Review of distribution theory, Hormander’s solution and estimates for the d-bar operator.
