Lectures on quasiconformal mappings by Lars V. Ahlfors

By Lars V. Ahlfors

Lars Ahlfors' Lectures on Quasiconformal Mappings, in accordance with a direction he gave at Harvard collage within the spring time period of 1964, used to be first released in 1966 and used to be quickly famous because the vintage it used to be almost immediately destined to develop into. those lectures boost the idea of quasiconformal mappings from scratch, provide a self-contained therapy of the Beltrami equation, and canopy the elemental houses of Teichmuller areas, together with the Bers embedding and the Teichmuller curve. it's striking how Ahlfors is going immediately to the center of the problem, proposing significant effects with a minimal set of must haves. Many graduate scholars and different mathematicians have discovered the rules of the theories of quasiconformal mappings and Teichmuller areas from those lecture notes. This version comprises 3 new chapters.The first, written via Earle and Kra, describes extra advancements within the idea of Teichmuller areas and offers many references to the large literature on Teichmuller areas and quasiconformal mappings. the second one, via Shishikura, describes how quasiconformal mappings have revitalized the topic of complicated dynamics. The 3rd, by way of Hubbard, illustrates the function of those mappings in Thurston's concept of hyperbolic buildings on 3-manifolds. jointly, those 3 new chapters convey the continued power and significance of the speculation of quasiconformal mappings.
