A classical theorem of John Wermer asserts that the algebra of continuous
functions on the circle with holomophic extensions to the disc is a maximal
subalgebra of the algebra of all continuous functions on the circle.
Wermer's theorem has been extended in numerous directions. These will be
discussed with an emphasis on extensions to several complex variables.
