The theory of Riemann surfaces lies in the intersection of many important areas of mathematics. Aside from being an important field of study in its own right, it has long been a source of inspiration, intuition, and examples for many branches of mathematics. These include complex manifolds, Lie groups, algebraic number theory, harmonic analysis, abelian varieties, algebraic topology.
