Basic treatment of the theory of analytic functions of a complex variable, touching on analytic functions of several real or complex variables as well as the existence theorem for solutions of differential systems where data is analytic. Also included is a theory of abstract complex manifolds of one complex dimension; holomorphic functions; Cauchy's integral, more. Exercises. 1973 edition.
