CR Manifolds and the Tangential Cauchy Riemann Complex provides an elementary introduction to CR manifolds and the tangential Cauchy-Riemann Complex and presents some of the most important recent developments in the field. The first half of the book covers the basic definitions and background material concerning CR manifolds, CR functions, the tangential Cauchy-Riemann Complex and the Levi form. The second half of the book is devoted to two significant areas of current research. The first area is the holomorphic extension of CR functions. Both the analytic disc approach and the Fourier transform approach to this problem are presented. The second area of research is the integral kernal approach to the solvability of the tangential Cauchy-Riemann Complex. CR Manifolds and the Tangential Cauchy Riemann Complex will interest students and researchers in the field of several complex variable and partial differential equations.

This book gathers contributions by respected experts on the theory of isometric immersions between Riemannian manifolds, and focuses on the geometry of CR structures on submanifolds in Hermitian manifolds. CR structures are a bundle theoretic recast of the tangential Cauchy–Riemann equations in complex analysis involving several complex variables. The book covers a wide range of topics such as Sasakian geometry, Kaehler and locally conformal Kaehler geometry, the tangential CR equations, Lorentzian geometry, holomorphic statistical manifolds, and paraquaternionic CR submanifolds. Intended as a tribute to Professor Aurel Bejancu, who discovered the notion of a CR submanifold of a Hermitian manifold in 1978, the book provides an up-to-date overview of several topics in the geometry of CR submanifolds. Presenting detailed information on the most recent advances in the area, it represents a useful resource for mathematicians and physicists alike.

Vibration and Damping in Distributed Systems, Volume I provides a comprehensive account of the mathematical study and self-contained analysis of vibration and damping in systems governed by partial differential equations. The book presents partial differential equations techniques for the mathematical study of this subject. A special objective of establishing the stability theory to treat many distributed vibration models containing damping is discussed. It presents the theory and methods of functional analysis, energy identities, and strongly continuous and holomorphic semigroups. Many mechanical designs are illustrated to provide concrete examples of damping devices. Numerical examples are also included to confirm the strong agreements between the theoretical estimates and numerical computations of damping rates of eigenmodes.

This book is intended both as an introductory text and as a reference book for those interested in studying several complex variables in the context of partial differential equations. In the last few decades, significant progress has been made in the fields of Cauchy-Riemann and tangential Cauchy-Riemann operators. This book gives an up-to-date account of the theories for these equations and their applications. The background material in several complex variables is developed in the first three chapters, leading to the Levi problem. The next three chapters are devoted to the solvability and regularity of the Cauchy-Riemann equations using Hilbert space techniques. The authors provide a systematic study of the Cauchy-Riemann equations and the $\bar\partial$-Neumann problem, including $L^2$ existence theorems on pseudoconvex domains, $\frac 12$-subelliptic estimates for the $\bar\partial$-Neumann problems on strongly pseudoconvex domains, global regularity of $\bar\partial$ on more general pseudoconvex domains, boundary regularity of biholomorphic mappings, irregularity of the Bergman projection on worm domains. The second part of the book gives a comprehensive study of the tangential Cauchy-Riemann equations. Chapter 7 introduces the tangential Cauchy-Riemann complex and the Lewy equation. An extensive account of the $L^2$ theory for $\square_b$ and $\bar\partial_b$ is given in Chapters 8 and 9. Explicit integral solution representations are constructed both on the Heisenberg groups and on strictly convex boundaries with estimates in Holder and $L^p$ spaces. Embeddability of abstract $CR$ structures is discussed in detail in the last chapter. This self-contained book provides a much-needed introductory text to several complex variables and partial differential equations. It is also a rich source of information to experts.

Abstract theory remains an indispensable foundation for the study of concrete cases. It shows what the general picture should look like and provides results that are useful again and again. Despite this, however, there are few, if any introductory texts that present a unified picture of the general abstract theory. A Course in Abstract Harmonic Analysis offers a concise, readable introduction to Fourier analysis on groups and unitary representation theory. After a brief review of the relevant parts of Banach algebra theory and spectral theory, the book proceeds to the basic facts about locally compact groups, Haar measure, and unitary representations, including the Gelfand-Raikov existence theorem. The author devotes two chapters to analysis on Abelian groups and compact groups, then explores induced representations, featuring the imprimitivity theorem and its applications. The book concludes with an informal discussion of some further aspects of the representation theory of non-compact, non-Abelian groups.

Several Complex Variables and the Geometry of Real Hypersurfaces covers a wide range of information from basic facts about holomorphic functions of several complex variables through deep results such as subelliptic estimates for the ?-Neumann problem on pseudoconvex domains with a real analytic boundary. The book focuses on describing the geometry of a real hypersurface in a complex vector space by understanding its relationship with ambient complex analytic varieties. You will learn how to decide whether a real hypersurface contains complex varieties, how closely such varieties can contact the hypersurface, and why it's important. The book concludes with two sets of problems: routine problems and difficult problems (many of which are unsolved). Principal prerequisites for using this book include a thorough understanding of advanced calculus and standard knowledge of complex analysis in one variable. Several Complex Variables and the Geometry of Real Hypersurfaces will be a useful text for advanced graduate students and professionals working in complex analysis.
