"The purpose of this dissertation is to give an analytic disc approach to the CR extension problem. Analytic discs give a very convenient tool for holomorphic extension of CR functions. The type function is introduced and showed how these type functions have direct application to important questions about CR extension. In this dissertation the CR extension theorem is proved for a rigid hypersurface M in C2 given by y = (Re ω)m(Im ω)n where m and n are non-negative integers. If the type function is identically zero at the origin, then there is no CR extension. In such case the hypersurface is foliated by complex curves. If the type function is not identically zero at the origin, then CR function either locally extend to one or both sides of the hypersurface depending on the values of m and n. Finally using this result a more precise description of the extension set is given for CR functions defined on the hypersurface M"--Abstract, page iii.
