Publisher Description:

Complex Analysis is the theory of functions of a single complex variable. (That is: Functions that map from complex numbers to complex numbers.) This is advanced undergraduate mathematics with applications to even more advanced mathematics, physics, and engineering. Some of the topics covered:

  • Fred's scheduling issues
  • Cauchy-Riemann equations; Cauchy-Goursat theorem; Cauchy’s formula
  • Derivatives and Integration in the set of complex numbers
  • Casorati-Weierstrass theorem; Picard’s theorems; Liouville theorem
  • Why the Residue theorem is called a residue
  • Red Riding Hood

Category Description for Life of Fred:

Life of Fred (LOF) is an unconventional series of math texts that seem accessible and friendly, especially for students who dislike traditional programs. According to Dr. Schmidt, the author, this series is designed to teach you the math you need to know without repetition, redundancy, and a multitude of problems to work. LOF follows the storyline of Fred's life while incorporating solid math concepts and skills. Motivated or independent students will appreciate this series, as well as gifted math students who might need a challenge. Written to the student and intended to be self-teaching, the author prefers that students use these with very little help from you, so they can learn to study and understand on their own. Even the solutions (found in the text) are addressed to the student. In fact, there's a lot of actual instruction in the solutions, which students should read after trying to solve problems on their own. Math in a story context can sometimes make more sense to students than stand-alone math concepts - especially if it's an entertaining story! Students do two books per year up through pre-algebra; beginning with algebra, one book per year.
