School business officials (SBOs) must, in many respects, serve as all things to all people in their workplaces. Put another way, SBOs must be knowledgeable about a wide range of legal issues ranging from contracts to setting policy to state biding laws let alone constitutional matters involving the rights of students and teachers. Aware of the fact that issues involving the law are at the heart of many of a SBO's duties, the chapters in this edited book have been written by a diverse array of individuals with experience as educational leaders in schools and/ or who possess significant expertise in the school law. In light of the need to keep SBOs up-to-date on many issues in the ever changing world of Education Law, this volume is divided into two parts. The first section deals with issues that primarily impact on the management of schools while the second deals with the rights of students and teachers. More specifically, each of the chapters is designed to examine a specific area about which SBOs need information. While no single book can ever hope to cover all of the myriad of legal topics that SBOs and other educational leaders must master in their professional lives, this book will serve as an up-to-date and ready source of information to help keep them abreast of the many changes in the ever evolving area of school law.

This mathematical study was initially written as a set of notes in complex analysis over the spring and summer of 2013. Its purpose is to clarify the techniques and results of complex analysis by using a dialogue between master and student. Its inspiration is the belief that this form of open conversation can show the reader both the tension and structure of the material. For this reason, dialogue can prove to be a very powerful and eloquent form of mathematical instruction.The book begins with an introduction to sequences and topology before tackling the topics of complex differentiability, Taylor series, contour integration, and the calculus of residues. After all this, complex functions are studied as conformal mappings, leading naturally to the Riemann mapping theorem.Before going on to the proof of this theorem, the focus shifts to the study of heat and Fourier analysis. The techniques of complex analysis are used to aid in studying the Fourier series and transform. The study then returns to conformal mappings in the context of solving Laplace's equation on various regions. After this, the topic becomes the study of special functions, culminating in Riemann's proof of the prime number theorem, and then shifting focus once again to the doubly-periodic elliptic functions. The final chapter is not standard in an introductory complex analysis book, and concerns the study of Theta functions and modular forms. There is a separate appendix of color plots to accompany this book.This work was mostly modeled after Elias Stein's lecture series at Princeton.
