Now available in paperback, this successful radical approach to complex analysis replaces the standard calculational arguments with new geometric ones. With several hundred diagrams, and far fewer prerequisites than usual, this is the first visual intuitive introduction to complex analysis.Although designed for use by undergraduates in mathematics and science, the novelty of the approach will also interest professional mathematicians.
