Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This radical first course on complex analysis brings a beautiful and powerful subject to life by consistently using geometry (not calculation) as the means of explanation. Aimed at undergraduate students in mathematics, physics, and engineering, the book's intuitive explanations, lack of advanced prerequisites, and consciously user-friendly prose style will help students to master the subject more readily than was previously possible. The key to this is the book's use of new geometric arguments in place of the standard calculational ones. These geometric arguments are communicated with the aid of hundreds of diagrams of a standard seldom encountered in mathematical works. A new approach to a classical topic, this work will be of interest to students in mathematics, physics, and engineering, as well as to professionals in these fields.

Note: the publisher lists this book at $80 US. Do not allow yourself to be overcharged for this book.

I read this book before I went back to school to study math. With a knowledge of basic calculus, not used in nearly a decade, I was able to read the book cover to cover, and I was astonished by the beauty and power of what I saw there. This is a passionate book about exquisite mathematics. Breathtaking and elegant. It motivated me to earn an MS in pure mathematics and continue on to a Ph.D. in math.
