Abstract: This talk will survey new theoretical methods for solving problems in the applied sciences involving multiply connected regions. The approach advocates the central role played by an important transcendental function, known as the Schottky-Klein prime function, naturally associated with any multiply connected planar domain. A variety of different applications will be discussed.
