Riemann surfaces

Personally I found the following survey article very inspiring when learning the subject: In particular this includes the Riemann surfaces of algebraic functions.

Number of poles and zeroes of meromorphic functions on compact Riemann surfaces. As well we look more closely at analytic functions which display a special multi-valued behavior.

A question from Otto Forster’s book on Riemann surfaces – MathOverflow

Looking for beautiful books? Check this carefully, because I haven’t thought about Forster’s book in a long time and because my first answer was wrong.

This book grew out of lectures on Riemann surfaces which the author gave at the universities of Munich, Regensburg and Munster. The reviewer is inclined to think that it may well become a favorite. It’s a wonderful book, despite those two problems I have asked, and maybe more.

Perspectives on Riemann Surfaces I do recommend the recent published book by Donaldson on this subject. Frances Kirwan’s book Complex Algebraic Curves has two really nice chapters on Riemann Surfaces and over all the level of the book is pretty decent to start with. Can any one recommend me a good introductory book in Riemann Surface?

The Dirichlet Boundary Value Problem. Lectures on Riemann Surfaces. Lecture 1, Tuesday, September 16, Definition of Riemann surfaces, first examples. Its aim is to give an introduction to this rich and beautiful subject, while presenting methods from the theory of complex manifolds which, in the special case of one complex variable, turn out to be particularly elementary and transparent.

The main classical results, like the Riemann-Roch Theorem, Abel’s Theorem and the Jacobi inversion problem, are presented.

I’ve worked through sections of both, and they’re both good. Meromorphic functions, first properties of morhisms of Riemann surfaces. The main theorems are all derived, following Serre, from the finite dimensionality of the first cohomology group with coefficients in the sheaf of holomorphic surfaxes. And the proof of this is based on the fact that one can locally solve inhomogeneous Cauchy Riemann equations and on Schwarz’ Lemma.
