It is remarkable how Ahlfors goes straight to quasiconforml heart of the matter, presenting major results with a minimum set of prerequisites. It is nevertheless a useful and enjoyable book, in that you get a firsthand glimpse into the theory while still mid-development, you get the same content as some of Ahlfors’s papers while packaged into a more self-contained exposition, and you find some “hard analysis” arguments for example, using elliptic functions that seem to be deemphasized lecyures more recent books.
Ob, these three new chapters exhibit the continuing vitality and importance of the theory of quasiconformal mappings.
Additional Material for the Book
Many sections will likely be confusing the first time or two, mainly because the level of detail is quite sparse. Second Edition Share this page. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to quadiconformal buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
It feels almost heresy to give this book anything less than a perfect, five star rating. The Best Books of Ordering on the AMS Bookstore is limited to individuals for personal use only. The author then shows that K-quasiconformal mappinvs of the unit disk unto itself form a sequentially compact family with respect to uniform convergence.
The second edition is made much more valuable by the addition of three new chapters by leading authorities in qasiconformal where quasiconformal mappings have proved especially fruitful. Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty.
Attention is then concentrated on proving the existence of quasiconformal mappings with a given complex dilatation. Get fast, free shipping with Amazon Prime. Visit our Beautiful Books page and find lovely books for kids, photography lovers and more.

AMS :: Ahlfors: Lectures on Quasiconformal Mappings
The dilatation is computed by considering the effect that the linearization of a C1 homeomorphism has on circles. Many graduate students and other mathematicians have learned the foundations of the theories of quasiconformal mappings and Teichmuller spaces from these lecture notes. It is remarkable how Ahlfors goes straight to the heart of the matter, presenting major results with a minimum set of prerequisites.
Grotzsch in as mappings that are as close to conformal as possible, but that can, for example, take a square in the plane and map it to a non-square rectangle in the plane, mapping vertices onto vertices in the process. Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers. The author ends his book with a consideration of Teichmuller spaces, with attention given to the extent to which the classical theory of conformally equivalent Riemann surfaces can be generalized to the context of quasiconformal mappings.
A more general definition of a quasiconformal mapping is then given, that relaxes the Grotzsch requirement that the mappings be C1. Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals. Conformal maps cannot do this, and a measure of how far the quasiconformal map is from being conformal involves the calculation of the dilatation at a point. The familiar Beltrami and quadratic differentials make their appearance, and the image of the mapping of the unit ball of Beltrami differentials to the spece of quadratic differentials is shown to be open.
Dual Price 2 Label: Together, these three new chapters exhibit the continuing vitality and importance of the theory of quasiconformal mappings. Libraries and resellers, please contact cust-serv ams. The first, written by Earle and Kra, describes further developments in the theory of Teichmuller spaces and provides many references to the vast literature on Teichmuller spaces and quasiconformal mappings. A supplement to Ahlfors’s lectures Complex dynamics and quasiconformal mappings Hyperbolic structures on three-manifolds that fiber over the circle.
A User’s Guide to Spectral Sequences: All of his discussion has the flavor of classical harmonic analysis, with detailed attention given to the proof of the Calderon-Zygmund inequality. Print Price 2 Label: Description Lars Ahlfors’ Lectures on Quasiconformal Mappings, based on a course he gave at Harvard University in the spring term ofwas first published in and was soon recognized as the classic it was shortly destined to become. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. He then considers the question as to when quadruples of distinct complex numbers can be mapped to each other under K-quasiconformal mappings.
