Class Details

The calculus of complex-valued functions turns out to have unexpected simplicity and power. As an example of simplicity, every complex-differentiable function is automatically infinitely differentiable. As examples of power, the so-called “residue calculus” permits the computation of “impossible” integrals, and “conformal mapping” reduces physical problems on very general domains to problems on the round disc. The easiest proof of the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra, not to mention the first proof of the Prime Number Theorem, used complex analysis. We will discuss these and other topics as time permits (such as the Riemann Mapping Theorem, Special Functions, and the Central Limit Theorem).
