**Description**:

An attempt is made of giving a self-contained introduction to holomorphic ideas in general relativity, following work over the last thirty years by several authors. The main topics are complex manifolds, spinor and twistor methods, heaven spaces.

**Dynamics in One Complex Variable**

by

**John Milnor**-

**Princeton University Press**

This text studies the dynamics of iterated holomorphic mappings from a Riemann surface to itself, concentrating on the case of rational maps of the Riemann sphere. The book introduces some key ideas in the field, and forms a basis for further study.
