An expository account is given of T. Wolff’s recent elementary proof of Carleson’s Corona Theorem (1962). The Corona Theorem answers affirmatively a question raised by S. Kakatani (1957) as to whether the open unit disc in the complex plane is dense in the maximal ideal space of the Banach algebra of bounded analytic functions thereon.
