These proceedings are a collection of papers from the Symposium on Several Complex Variables held April 12–15, 1983 in Madison, Wisconsin. At the symposium, H. Grauert, J. J. Kohn, M. Schneider, H. Skoda and S. T. Yau delivered onehour survey talks addressing major areas of important recent developments; in addition, over forty papers were presented as specialized halfhour talks. The book contains a selection of the presented papers as well as some contributed papers.
