This book offers an easy and compact access to the theory of Teichmuller spaces, starting from the most elementary aspects to the most recent developments, e.g. the role this theory plays with regard to string theory. Teichmuller spaces give parametrization of all the complex structures on a given Riemann surface. This subject is related to many different areas of mathematics including complex analysis, algebraic geometry, differential geometry, topology in two and three dimensions, Kleinian and Fuchsian groups, automorphic forms, complex dynamics, and ergodic theory. Recently, Teichmuller spaces have begun to play an important role in string theory. Imayoshi and Taniguchi have attempted to make the book as self-contained as possible. They present numerous examples and heuristic arguments in order to help the reader grasp the ideas of Teichmuller theory. The book will be an excellent source of information for graduate students and reserachers in complex analysis and algebraic geometry as well as for theoretical physicists working in quantum theory.
