Summary

Complex Dynamics: Families and Friends features contributions by many of the leading mathematicians in the field, such as Mikhail Lyubich, John Milnor, Mitsuhiro Shishikura, and William Thurston. Some of the chapters, including an introduction by Thurston to the general subject of complex dynamics, are classic manuscripts that were never published before but have influenced the field for more than two decades. Other chapters contain fresh, original work and bring readers to the current frontier of research. The title reflects the fruitful interplay between diverse mathematical fields bound together by the common theme of complex dynamics, including hyperbolic geometry, number theory, group theory, combinatorics, general dynamics, and many more. At the same time, the title alludes to the spirit of mathematical friendship among the researchers in this area. This book is a tribute to John Hubbard, one of the most inspiring pioneers in the field of complex dynamics.
