Similar in philosophy to the study of moduli spaces in algebraic geometry, the central theme of this book is that spaces of (pseudoconvex) domains should admit geometrical structures that reflect the complex geometry of the underlying domains in a natural way. Semmes makes two main points in the book. The first is that there is a reasonable analogue of the universal Teichmüller space for domains in ${\mathbf C}^n$, which has a great deal of interesting geometrical structure, some of which is surprisingly analogous to the classical situation in one complex variable. Second, there is a very natural notion of a Riemann mapping in several complex variables which is a modification of Lempert's, but which is defined in terms of first-order differential equations. In particular, the space of these Riemann mappings has a natural complex structure, which induces interesting geometry on the corresponding space of domains. With its unusual geometric perspective of some topics in several complex variables, this book appeals to those who view much of mathematics in broadly geometrical terms.
