From the INTRODUCTION.
Isabel Coston Byrum (1870-1938) was an American author. Amongst her most famous works are: Bedtime Stories from the Old Testament (1911), The Value of a Praying Mother (1911), The Poorhouse Waif and His Divine Teacher (1919), How John Became a Man: Life Story of a Motherless Boy (1917) and Tread of Years (1938). "Out on the prairie in one of the western states where buffaloes and wild horses once had roamed at their pleasure and where cacti and yuccas still thrived and bloomed could be seen a small two-story frame building. There was nothing strange in this except that the house was different from the average house of the plains; for at this particular time the greater part of the dwellings were made of sod, mud, and brush. "
In the drowsy heat of the summer afternoon the Red House was taking its siesta. There was a lazy murmur of bees in the flower-borders, a gentle cooing of pigeons in the tops of the elms. From distant lawns came the whir of a mowing-machine, that most restful of all country sounds; making ease the sweeter in that it is taken while others are working. It was the hour when even those whose business it is to attend to the wants of others have a moment or two for themselves. In the housekeeper's room Audrey Stevens, the pretty parlour-maid, re-trimmed her best hat, and talked idly to her aunt, the cook-housekeeper of Mr. Mark Ablett's bachelor home. "For Joe?" said Mrs. Stevens placidly, her eye on the hat. Audrey nodded. She took a pin from her mouth, found a place in the hat for it, and said, "He likes a bit of pink." "I don't say I mind a bit of pink myself," said her aunt. "Joe Turner isn't the only one." "It isn't everybody's colour," said Audrey, holding the hat out at arm's length, and regarding it thoughtfully. "Stylish, isn't it?"
This book contains a comprehensive exposition of the Nevanlinna theory of meromorphic functions of one complex variable, with detailed study of deficiencies, value distribution, and asymptotic properties of meromorphic functions. A self-contained exposition of the inverse problem for meromorphic functions of finite order with finitely many deficiencies is given in full detail. Many results included in the book belong to the authors, and were previously available only in journal articles. The main body of the book is a translation of the Russian original published in 1970, which has been one of the most popular sources in this field since then. New references and footnotes related to recent achievements in the topics considered in the original edition have been added and a few corrections made. A new Appendix with a survey of the results obtained after 1970 and extensive bibliography has been written by Alexandre Eremenko and James K. Langley for this English edition. The only prerequisite for understanding material of this book is an undergraduate course in the theory of functions of one complex variable.
