Applications of Runge’s Theorem

  • Raghavan Narasimhan


This chapter is devoted to various theorems which can be proved using Runge’s theorem : the existence of functions with prescribed zeros or poles, a “cohomological” version of Cauchy’s theorem, and related theorems. The last section concerns itself with . (Ω) as a ring (or ℂ-algebra).
