## The Closed Range Property for $$ \bar \partial $$ on Domains with Pseudoconcave Boundary

In this paper we study the

$$
-equation on domains with pseudoconcave boundary. When the domain is the annulus between two pseudoconvex domains in ℂ^{n}, we prove *L*^{2} existence theorems for
$$
\bar \partial
$$
for any

\bar \partial
$$
-closed (*p, q*)- form with 1 ≤ *q* < *n*−1. We also study the critical case when *q* = *n*−1 on the annulus? and show that the space of harmonic forms is infinite dimensional. Some recent results and open problems on pseudoconcave domains in complex projective spaces are also surveyed.

## Zeros of Holomorphic Functions

### Complex Analysis (2007) 245: 191-211 , January 01, 2007

There are certain (classical families of) functions of a complex variable that mathematicians have studied frequently enough for them to acquire their own names. These functions are, of course, ones that develop naturally and repeatedly in various mathematical settings. Examples of such *named* functions include Euler’s Г-function, the Riemann ζ-function, and the Euler Φ-function. We will study only the first of these functions. There is a long history of synergy between the understanding of such functions and the development of complex analysis.

## Cauchy Theory: Local Behavior and Singularities of Holomorphic Functions

### Complex Analysis (2013) 245: 139-169 , October 08, 2012

Download PDF | Post to Citeulike

In this chapter we use the Cauchy theory to study functions that are holomorphic on an annulus, and analytic functions with isolated singularities. We describe a classification for isolated singularities. Functions that are holomorphic on an annulus have *Laurent series* expansions, an analogue of power series expansions for holomorphic functions on discs. Holomorphic functions with a finite number of isolated singularities in a domain can be integrated using the *residue theorem*, an analogue of the Cauchy integral formula. We discuss local properties of these functions. The study of zeros and poles of meromorphic functions leads to a theorem of Rouché that connects the number of zeros and poles to an integral. The theorem is not only aesthetically pleasing in its own right but also allows us to give alternate proofs of many important results. In the penultimate section of this chapter we illustrate the use of complex function theory in the evaluation of real definite integrals. The appendix discusses Cauchy principal values, a way to integrate functions with certain singularities.

## Properties of Entire Functions

We now show that if f is entire and if
$$ g(z) = \left\{ {\begin{array}{*{20}{c}} {f(z) - f(a)} & {z \ne a} \\{f'(a)} & {z = a} \\ \end{array} } \right. $$
then the Integral Theorem (4.15) and Closed Curve Theorem (4.16) apply to *g* as well as to *f*. (Note that since *f* is entire, *g* is continuous; however, it is not obvious that *g* is entire.)We begin by showing that the Rectangle Theorem applies to *g*.

## Special Functions

### Complex Analysis (1998): 1-76 , January 01, 1998

This chapter introduces the classical special functions. It is certainly not intended to give an exhaustive treatment of them; rather we are interested in these functions primarily as examples of technique. The problem of determining the behavior of a definite integral, or of the solution to a differential equation, as a function of various parameters is one that arises frequently. If one is lucky, one finds that someone else has encountered the same function and that a reasonably complete theory exists. More often one is left to one’s own devices. For this reason it is much more important to understand the available techniques than to have memorized a list of formulae.

This chapter is devoted to an important tool for constructing holomorphic functions: convergent power series. It is the basis for the introduction of new non-algebraic holomorphic functions, the elementary transcendental functions. It turns out that power series play an even more central role in the theory of holomorphic functions, a role beyond enabling the construction of complex transcendental functions that are the extension of the real transcendental functions. A much stronger result holds. All holomorphic functions are (at least locally) convergent power series. This will be proven in the next chapter.

## Elliptic Modular Forms

### Complex Analysis (2009): 1-63 , January 01, 2009

Download PDF | Post to Citeulike

In connection with the question which complex numbers can be written as the absolute invariant of a lattice, we were led to analytic functions with a new type of symmetries. These functions are analytic functions on the upper half-plane with a specific transformation law with respect to the action of the full elliptic modular group (or of certain subgroups) on H, namely
$$f\left(\frac{az+b}{cz+d}\right)=(cz + d)^k f(z).$$
Functions with such a transformation behavior are called *modular forms*.

We will see that the elliptic modular group is generated by the substitutions
$$z \mapsto z + 1\ {\rm{and}}\ z \mapsto -\frac{1}{z}.$$
It is thus enough to check the transformation behavior only for these substitutions. There is an analogy to the transformation behavior of elliptic functions under translations in a lattice *L*, where it was also sufficient to check the invariance under the two generating *translations* ω_{1}, ω_{2}. But in contrast to the translation lattice *L*, the elliptic modular group is *not* commutative. Hence the theory of modular forms is more complicated than the theory of elliptic functions. This could be already observed in the construction of a fundamental domain for the action of the modular group Γ on the upper half-plane H, V.8.7.

We wish to examine the notion of a “function of z” where *z* is a complex variable. To be sure, a complex variable can be viewed as nothing but a pair of real variables so that in one sense a function of *z* is nothing but a function of two real variables. This was the point of view we took in the last section in discussing continuous functions. But somehow this point of view is too general. There are some functions which are “direct” functions of *z* = *x* + *iy* and not simply functions of the separate pieces *x* and *y*.

## Sequences and Series of Analytic Functions, the Residue Theorem

### Complex Analysis (2009): 1-88 , January 01, 2009

Download PDF | Post to Citeulike

It is known from real analysis that *pointwise convergence* of a sequence of functions shows certain pathologies. For instance, the pointwise limit of a sequence of continuous functions is not necessarily continuous, and in general we cannot exchange limit processes, et cetera. Therefore we are led to introduce the notion of *uniform convergence*, which has better stability properties. For example, the limit of a uniformly convergent sequence of continuous functions is continuous. Another basic stability theorem holds for the (proper) integral:

*A uniformly convergent sequence of integrable functions converges to an integrable function. The limit and integration can be exchanged*.

*However, differentiability in real analysis is not stable with respect to uniform convergence*.

The corresponding stability theorems are more complicated and require additional conditions on the sequence of derivatives. In function theory one introduces the concept of uniform convergence by analogy with real analysis. The stability of continuity and of the integral along curves can be obtained completely analogously to the real case, and in fact can be reduced to that case.

## Introduction

### Complex Analysis (2009): 1-7 , January 01, 2009

The complex numbers have their historical origin in the 16^{th} century when they were created during attempts to solve *algebraic equations*. G. CARDANO (1545) has already introduced formal expressions as for instance
$$5 \pm \sqrt{-15}$$
, in order to express solutions of quadratic and cubic equations. Around 1560 R. BOMBELLI computed systematically using such expressions and found 4 as a solution of the equation
$$x^3 = 15x + 4$$
in the disguised form
$$4 = \sqrt[3]{2 + \sqrt{-121}} + \sqrt[3]{2 - \sqrt{-121}}$$
Also in the work of G.W. LEIBNIZ (1675) one can find equations of this kind, e.g.
$$\sqrt{1 + \sqrt{-3}} + \sqrt{1 - \sqrt{-3}} = \sqrt{6}.$$
In the year 1777 L. EULER introduced the notation
$${\rm{i}} = \sqrt{-1}$$
for the *imaginary* unit.

## Harmonic Functions

### Complex Analysis (2007) 245: 173-190 , January 01, 2007

This chapter is devoted to the study of harmonic functions. These functions are closely connected to holomorphic maps since the real and imaginary parts of a holomorphic function are harmonic functions. The study of harmonic functions is important in physics and engineering, and there are many results in the theory of harmonic functions that are not connected directly with complex analysis. However, in this chapter we consider that part of the theory of harmonic functions that grows out of the Cauchy Theory. Mathematically this is quite pleasing.

Assume that *E* and *B* are complex manifolds and that π : *E* → *B* is a holomorphic Serre fibration such that *E* admits a finite dominating family of holomorphic fiber-sprays over a small neighborhood of any point in *B*. We show that the parametric Oka property (POP) of *B* implies POP of *E*; conversely, POP of *E* implies POP of *B* for contractible parameter spaces. This follows from a parametric Oka principle for holomorphic liftings which we establish in the paper.

We have already seen how the Residue Theorem can be used to evaluate real line integrals. The techniques involved, however, are in noway limited to real integrals. To evaluate an integral along any contour, we can always switch to a more “convenient” contour as long as we account for the pertinent residues of the integrand.

In this chapter, we study *conformal maps* between domains in the extended complex plane
$$\widehat{\mathbb{C}}$$
; these are one-to-one meromorphic functions. Our goal here is to characterize all simply connected domains in the extended complex plane. The first two sections of this chapter study the action of a quotient of the group of two-by-two nonsingular complex matrices on the extended complex plane, namely, the group PSL(2, *ℂ*) and the projective special linear group. This group is also known as the Möbius group. In the third section we characterize simply connected proper domains in the complex plane by establishing the Riemann mapping theorem (RMT). This extraordi- nary theorem tells us that there are conformal maps between any two such domains.

The Uniqueness Theorem (6.9) states that a non-constant analytic function in a region cannot be constant on any open set. Similarly, according to Proposition 3.7, |*f*| cannot be constant. Thus a non-constant analytic function cannot map an open set into a point or a circular arc. By applying the Maximum-Modulus Theorem, we can derive the following sharper result on the mapping properties of an analytic function.

The main tools we use are interaction of strata for *f* (see [4]), monodromy of the local system *H*^{n-1} (*u*) on *S* for a given eigenvalue exp(−2*iπu*) of the monodromy of *f*, and the monodromy of the cover *g*S.

## Maximum-Modulus Theorems for Unbounded Domains

The Maximum-Modulus Theorem (6.13) shows that a function which is *C*-analytic in a compact domain *D* assumes its maximum modulus on the boundary. In general, if we consider unbounded domains, the theorem no longer holds. For example,
$$ f(z) = e^z $$
is analytic and unbounded in the right half-plane despite the fact that on the boundary
$$ |e^z | = e^{iy} | = 1 $$
. Nevertheless, given certain restrictions on the growth of the function, we can conclude that it attains its maximum modulus on the boundary. The most natural such condition is that the function remain bounded throughout *D*.

## Elliptic Functions

### Complex Analysis (2009): 1-65 , January 01, 2009

Historically, the starting point of the theory of elliptic functions were the *elliptic integrals*, named in this way because of their direct connection to computing arc lengths of ellipses. Already in 1718 (G.C. FAGNANO), a very special elliptic integral was extensively investigated,
$$E(x) : = \int^{x}_{0} \frac{dt}{\sqrt{1-t^4}}.$$
It represents in the interval ]0, 1[ a strictly increasing (continuous) function. So we can consider its inverse function *f*. A result of N.H. ABEL (1827) affirms that *f* has a meromorphic continuation into the entire C. In addition to an obvious real period, ABEL discovered a hidden complex period. So the function *f* turned out to be a *doubly periodic function*. Nowadays, a meromorphic function in the plane with two independent periods is also called *elliptic*. Many results that were already know for the elliptic integral, as for instance the famous EULER Addition Theorem for elliptic integrals, appeared to be surprisingly simple corollaries of properties of elliptic functions. This motivated K. WEIERSTRASS to turn the tables. In his lectures in the winter term 1862/1863 he gave a purely function theoretical introduction to the theory of elliptic functions. In the center of this new setup, there is a special function, the ℘-function. It satisfies a differential equation which immediately shows the inverse function of ℘ to be an elliptic integral. The theory of elliptic integrals was thus derived as a byproduct of the theory of elliptic functions.

## The Complex Numbers

Numbers of the form
$$ a + b\sqrt { - 1} $$
, where *a* and *b* are real numbers—what we call complex numbers.appeared as early as the 16th century. Cardan (1501–1576) worked with complex numbers in solving quadratic and cubic equations. In the 18th century, functions involving complex numberswere found by Euler to yield solutions to differential equations. As more manipulations involving complex numbers were tried, it became apparent that many problems in the theory of real-valued functions could be most easily solved using complex numbers and functions. For all their utility, however, complex numbers enjoyed a poor reputation and were not generally considered legitimate numbers until the middle of the 19th century. Descartes, for example, rejected complex roots of equations and coined the term “gimaginary” for such roots. Euler, too, felt that complex numbers “exist only in the imagination” and considered complex roots of an equation useful only in showing that the equation actually has *no* solutions.

In general, one may ask: Which functions
$$f : D \to \mathcal{C}, D \subset \mathcal{C}$$
open, have a primitive? Recall that in the real case any *continuous* function
$$f : [a, b] \to \mathcal{R}, a < b$$

We extend the classical theorem of Radó to locally solvable structures of co-rank one. One of the main tools in the proof is a refinement of the Baouendi-Treves approximation theorem that may be of independent interest.

## Different Forms of Analytic Functions

The analytic functions we have encountered so far have generally been defined either by power series or as a combination of the elementary polynomial, trigonometric and exponential functions, alongwith their inverse functions. In this chapter, we consider three different ways of representing analytic functions. We begin with infinite products and then take a closer look at functions defined by definite integrals, a topic touched upon earlier in Chapter 7 and in Chapter 12.2. Finally, we define Dirichlet series, which provide a link between analytic functions and number theory.

## Applications of a Parametric Oka Principle for Liftings

### Complex Analysis (2010): 205-211 , January 01, 2010

A parametric Oka principle for liftings, recently proved by Forstnerič, provides many examples of holomorphic maps that are fibrations in a model structure introduced in previous work of the author. We use this to show that the basic Oka property is equivalent to the parametric Oka property for a large class of manifolds. We introduce new versions of the basic and parametric Oka properties and show, for example, that a complex manifold *X* has the basic Oka property if and only if every holomorphic map to *X* from a contractible submanifold of ℂ^{n} extends holomorphically to ℂ^{n}.

## New Normal Forms for Levi-nondegenerate Hypersurfaces

In this paper we construct a large class of new normal forms for Levi-nondegenerate real hypersurfaces in complex spaces. We adopt a general approach illustrating why these normal forms are natural and which role is played by the celebrated Chern-Moser normal form. The latter appears in our class as the one with the “maximum normalization” in the lowest degree. However, there are other natural normal forms, even with normalization conditions for the terms of the same degree. Some of these forms do not involve the cube of the trace operator and, in that sense, are simplier than the one by Chern-Moser. We have attempted to give a complete and self-contained exposition (including proofs of well-known results about trace decompositions) that should be accessible to graduate students.

## On the Subellipticity of Some Hypoelliptic Quasihomogeneous Systems of Complex Vector Fields

For about twenty five years it was a kind of folk theorem that complex vector-fields defined on Ω × ℝ_{t} (with Ω open set in ℝ^{n}) by
$$
L_j = \frac{\partial }
{{\partial t_j }} + i\frac{{\partial \phi }}
{{\partial t_j }}(t)\frac{\partial }
{{\partial x}},j = 1, \ldots ,n, t \in \Omega ,x \in \mathbb{R},
$$
with φ analytic, were subelliptic as soon as they were hypoelliptic. This was indeed the case when *n* = 1 [Tr1] but in the case *n* > 1, an inaccurate reading of the proof (based on a non standard subelliptic estimate) given by Maire [Mai1] (see also Trèves [Tr2]) of the hypoellipticity of such systems, under the condition that φ does not admit any local maximum or minimum, was supporting the belief for this folk theorem. This question reappears in the book of [HeNi] in connection with the semi-classical analysis of Witten Laplacians. Quite recently, J.L. Journé and J.M. Trépreau [JoTre] show by explicit examples that there are very simple systems (with polynomial φ’s) which were hypoelliptic but not subelliptic in the standard *L*^{2}-sense. But these operators are not quasihomogeneous.

In [De] and [DeHe] the homogeneous and the quasihomogeneous cases were analyzed in dimension 2. Large classes of systems for which subellipticiity can be proved were exhibited. We will show in this paper how a new idea for the construction of escaping rays permits to show that in the analytic case *all* the quasihomogeneous hypoelliptic systems in the class above considered by Maire are effectively subelliptic in the 2-dimensional case. The analysis presented here is a continuation of two previous works by the first author for the homogeneous case [De] and the two authors for the quasihomogeneous case [DeHe].

Suppose we are given a function *f* which is analytic in a region *D*. We will say that *f* can be continued analytically to a region *D*_{1} that intersects *D* if there exists a function *g*, analytic in *D*_{1} and such that *g* = *f* throughout
$$ D_1 \cap D_2 $$
. By the Uniqueness Theorem (6.9) any such continuation of *f* is uniquely determined. (It is possible, however, to have two analytic continuations *g*_{1} and *g*_{2} of a function *f* to regions *D*_{1} and *D*_{2} respectively with
$$ g_1 \ne g_2 $$
throughout
$$ D_1 \cap D_2 $$
. See Exercise 1.)

In this paper we consider the analogue of Kohn’s operator but with a point singularity, $$ P = BB^* + B^* (t^{2\ell } + x^{2k} )B, B = D_x + ix^{q - 1} D_t . $$ .

We show that this operator is hypoelliptic and Gevrey hypoelliptic in a certain range, namely *k* < ℓ*q*, with Gevrey index
$$
\tfrac{{\ell _q }}
{{\ell _q - k}} = 1 + \tfrac{k}
{{\ell _q - k}}
$$
. Work in progress by the present authors suggests that, outside the above range of the parameters, i.e., when *k* ≥ ℓ*q*, the operator is not even hypoelliptic.

We consider perturbations of CR structures which preserve the complex tangent bundle. For a compact generic CR manifold its concavity properties and hence the finiteness of some $$ \bar \partial _b $$ -cohomology groups are also preserved by such perturbations of the CR structure. Here we study the stability of the vanishing of these groups.

We now turn from the study of a single holomorphic function to the study of collections of holomorphic functions. In the first section we will see that under the appropriate notion of convergence of a sequence of holomorphic functions, the limit function inherits several properties that the approximating functions have, such as being holomorphic. In the second section we show that the space of holomorphic functions on a domain can be given the structure of a complete metric space. We then apply these ideas and results to obtain, as an illustrative example, a series expansion for the cotangent function. In the fourth section we characterize the compact subsets of the space of holomorphic functions on a domain. This powerful characterization is used in Sect. , to study approximations of holomorphic functions and, in particular, to prove Runge’s theorem, which describes conditions under which a holomorphic function can be approximated by rational functions with prescribed poles. The characterization will also be used in Chap. 8 to prove the Riemann mapping theorem.

We have already seen, especially in Chapter 11, howthe methods of complex analysis can be applied to the solution of problems from other area of mathematics. In this chapter we will get some insight into the fantastic breadth of such applications. For that reason, the topics chosen are rather disparate. Section 19.1 involves calculating the total variation of a real function, and illustraties how the methods of Chapter 11 can be applied to yet another nontypical problem. Section 19.2 offers a proof of the classic Fourier Uniqueness Theorem using two preliminary results from real analysis and a surprising application of Liouville's theorem. In Section 19.3 we see how the use of a generating function allows complex analytic results to be applied to an infinite system of (real) equations. Generating functions are also the key to the four different problems in number theory that comprise section 19.4. Finally, in section 19.5, we offer a well-trimmed analytic proof of the prime number theorem based on properties of the Zeta function and another Dirichlet series.

In the last two chapters, we studied the connection between everywhere convergent power series and entire functions. We now turn our attention to the more general relationship between power series and analytic functions.According to Theorem 2.9 every power series represents an analytic function inside its circle of convergence. Our first goal is the converse of this theorem: we will show that a function analytic in a disc can be represented there by a power series. We then turn to the question of analytic functions in arbitrary open sets and the local behavior of such functions.

We consider coherent and cohesive sheaves of *O* over open sets ω ⊂ ℂ^{n}. We prove that coherent sheaves, and certain other sheaves derived from them, are cohesive; and conversely, certain sheaves derived from cohesive sheaves are coherent. An important tool in all this, also proved here, is that the sheaf of Banach space valued holomorphic germs is flat.

## The Cauchy Theory: A Fundamental Theorem

As with the theory of differentiation for complex-valued functions of a complex variable, the integration theory of such functions begins by mimicking and extending results from the theory for real-valued functions of a real variable, but again the resulting theory is substantially different, more robust, and more elegant. Specifically, a curve or path γ in *ℂ* is a continuous *function* from a closed interval in *ℝ* to *ℂ*. Thus the restriction of a complex-valued function *f* on *ℂ* to the range of a curve has real and imaginary parts which can be viewed as real-valued functions of a real variable and thus integrated on the interval. Adding the integral of the real part to *ı* times the integral of the imaginary part defines a complex-valued integral of a complex-valued function (i.e.,
$$\int \nolimits \nolimits f = \int \nolimits \nolimits \mathfrak{R}f + \imath \int \nolimits \nolimits \mathfrak{I}f$$
). In fact, there are several useful ways to employ the ability to integrate a function of a real variable to define complex-valued integrals of a complex variable over certain paths. Among these integrals are those known as line integrals, complex line integrals, and integrals with respect to arc length. One can then use the integration theory of real variables to obtain an integration theory for complex-valued functions along curves in *ℂ*. This extends to a more general theory, the Cauchy theory, which constitutes a main portion of the fundamental theorem (Theorem 1.1). The integration theory depends not just on the integrated function being holomorphic but also upon the topology of the curve over which the integration is being carried out and the topology of the domain in which the curve lies. In the simplest situation Cauchy’s theorem says that the integral of a holomorphic function over a simple closed curve lying in a convex domain is equal to zero.

## Analytic Number Theory

Analytic number theory contains one of the most beautiful applications of complex analysis. In the following sections we will treat some of the distinguished pearls of this fascinating subject.

We have already seen in Sect. VI.4 that quadratic forms or the corresponding lattices can serve to construct modular forms. The Fourier coefficients of the theta series associated to quadratic forms or to lattices have number theoretical importance. They appear as representation numbers for quadratic forms, and respectively as numbers of lattice points of a given norm. Due to the general structure theorems for modular forms, one can bring together theta series and Eisenstein series. We will compute the Fourier coefficients of the Eisenstein series, obtaining thus number theoretical applications. In particular, in Sect. VII.1 we will find the number of representations of a natural number as a sum of four or eight squares by purely function theoretical means.

Starting with the second section, we will be concerned with Dirichlet series, including the Riemann *ζ*-function. There is a strong connection between modular forms and Dirichlet series (Sect. VII.3). We prove Hecke’s Theorem, claiming a one-to-one correspondence between Dirichlet series with a functional equation of special type and Fourier series with special transformation property under the substitution
$$z \mapsto - 1/z$$
and with certain asymptotic growth conditions. This correspondence will be obtained by means of the Mellin transform of the *G*-function. As an application, we obtain in particular the analytic continuation of the *ζ*-function into the plane, and also its functional equation.
