Complex analysis : in the spirit of Lipman Bers by
Jane Gilman(
)
11 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is intended for a graduate course on complex analysis, also known as function theory. The main focus is the theory of complexvalued functions of a single complex variable. This theory is a prerequisite for the study of many current and rapidly developing areas of mathematics including the theory of several and infinitely many complex variables, the theory of groups, hyperbolic geometry and threemanifolds, and number theory. Complex analysis has connections and applications to many other subjects in mathematics and to other sciences. It is an area where the classic and the modern techniques meet and benefit from each other. This material should be part of the education of every practicing mathematician, and it will also be of interest to computer scientists, physicists, and engineers." "The book covers most, if not all, of the material contained in Bers's courses on first year complex analysis. In addition, topics of current interest such as zeros of holomorphic functions and the connection between hyperbolic geometry and complex analysis are explored."Jacket

Mathematical aspects of subsonic and transonic gas dynamics by
Lipman Bers(
Book
)
31 editions published between 1958 and 2016 in English and Russian and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This concise volume by a prominent mathematician offers an important survey of mathematical aspects of the theory of compressible fluids. The treatment is geared toward advanced undergraduates and graduate students in physics, applied mathematics, and engineering. Focusing on twodimensional steady potential flows, the text eschews detailed proofs in favor of clear indications of the main ideas and descriptions of new mathematical concepts and methods that arose in connection with these chapters in fluid dynamics. Starting with a general discussion of the differential equations of a compressible gas flow, the book advances to the mathematical background of subsonic flow theory. Subsequent chapters explore the behavior of a flow at infinity and methods for the determination of flows around profiles, flows in channels and with a free boundary, the mathematical background of transonic gas dynamics, and some problems in transonic flow. An extensive bibliography of 400 papers concludes the text

Contributions to Analysis: A Collection of Papers Dedicated to Lipman Bers is a compendium of papers provided by Bers, friends, students, colleagues, and professors. These papers deal with Teichmuller spaces, Kleinian groups, theta functions, algebraic geometry. Other papers discuss quasiconformal mappings, function theory, differential equations, and differential topology. One paper discusses the results of the rigidity theorem of Mostow and its generalization by Marden in relation to geometric properties of Kleinian groups of the first kind.
