# Analysis of Several Complex Variables

Share this page
*Takeo Ohsawa*

One of the approaches to the study of functions of several complex variables is
to use methods originating in real analysis. In this concise book, the author
gives a lucid presentation of how these methods produce a variety of global
existence theorems in the theory of functions (based on the characterization of
holomorphic functions as weak solutions of the Cauchy-Riemann equations).

Emphasis is on recent results, including an \(L^2\) extension theorem
for holomorphic functions, that have brought a deeper understanding of
pseudoconvexity and plurisubharmonic functions. Based on Oka's theorems and
his schema for the grouping of problems, the book covers topics at the
intersection of the theory of analytic functions of several variables and
mathematical analysis.

It is assumed that the reader has a basic knowledge of complex
analysis at the undergraduate level. The book would make a fine supplementary
text for a graduate-level course on complex analysis.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in several complex variables and analytic spaces.

#### Reviews & Endorsements

The goal of this admirable little book is … to ascend rapidly to a few well-chosen peaks.
