# The kernel function and conformal mapping

Share this page
*S Bergman*

The

The unification of methods in the theory of functions of one and several
complex variables is one of the purposes of introducing the kernel function and
the domains with a distinguished boundary. This approach has been extensively
developed during the last two decades. This second edition of Professor
Bergman's book reviews this branch of the theory including recent developments
not dealt with in the first edition. The presentation of the topics is simple
and presupposes only knowledge of an elementary course in the theory of
analytic functions of one variable.

#### Readership
