A Course in Complex Analysis

Author: Wolfgang Fischer
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9783834886613
Release Date: 2011-10-21
Genre: Mathematics

This carefully written textbook is an introduction to the beautiful concepts and results of complex analysis. It is intended for international bachelor and master programmes in Germany and throughout Europe; in the Anglo-American system of university education the content corresponds to a beginning graduate course. The book presents the fundamental results and methods of complex analysis and applies them to a study of elementary and non-elementary functions (elliptic functions, Gamma- and Zeta function including a proof of the prime number theorem ...) and – a new feature in this context! – to exhibiting basic facts in the theory of several complex variables. Part of the book is a translation of the authors’ German text “Einführung in die komplexe Analysis”; some material was added from the by now almost “classical” text “Funktionentheorie” written by the authors, and a few paragraphs were newly written for special use in a master’s programme.

Release Date: 2012-01-01
Genre: Mathematics

This book is written for mathematics students who have encountered basic complex analysis and want to explore more advanced project and/or research topics. It could be used as (a) a supplement for a standard undergraduate complex analysis course, allowing students in groups or as individuals to explore advanced topics, (b) a project resource for a senior capstone course for mathematics majors, (c) a guide for an advanced student or a small group of students to independently choose and explore an undergraduate research topic, or (d) a portal for the mathematically curious, a hands-on introduction to the beauties of complex analysis. Research topics in the book include complex dynamics, minimal surfaces, fluid flows, harmonic, conformal, and polygonal mappings, and discrete complex analysis via circle packing. The nature of this book is different from many mathematics texts: the focus is on student-driven and technology-enhanced investigation. Interlaced in the reading for each chapter are examples, exercises, explorations, and projects, nearly all linked explicitly with computer applets for visualization and hands-on manipulation. There are more than 15 Java applets that allow students to explore the research topics without the need for purchasing additional software.

A Course in Complex Analysis and Riemann Surfaces

Author: Wilhelm Schlag
Publisher: American Mathematical Society
ISBN: 9780821898475
Release Date: 2014-08-06
Genre: Mathematics

Complex analysis is a cornerstone of mathematics, making it an essential element of any area of study in graduate mathematics. Schlag's treatment of the subject emphasizes the intuitive geometric underpinnings of elementary complex analysis that naturally lead to the theory of Riemann surfaces. The book begins with an exposition of the basic theory of holomorphic functions of one complex variable. The first two chapters constitute a fairly rapid, but comprehensive course in complex analysis. The third chapter is devoted to the study of harmonic functions on the disk and the half-plane, with an emphasis on the Dirichlet problem. Starting with the fourth chapter, the theory of Riemann surfaces is developed in some detail and with complete rigor. From the beginning, the geometric aspects are emphasized and classical topics such as elliptic functions and elliptic integrals are presented as illustrations of the abstract theory. The special role of compact Riemann surfaces is explained, and their connection with algebraic equations is established. The book concludes with three chapters devoted to three major results: the Hodge decomposition theorem, the Riemann-Roch theorem, and the uniformization theorem. These chapters present the core technical apparatus of Riemann surface theory at this level. This text is intended as a detailed, yet fast-paced intermediate introduction to those parts of the theory of one complex variable that seem most useful in other areas of mathematics, including geometric group theory, dynamics, algebraic geometry, number theory, and functional analysis. More than seventy figures serve to illustrate concepts and ideas, and the many problems at the end of each chapter give the reader ample opportunity for practice and independent study.

Die komplexen Zahlen haben ihre historischen Wurzeln im 16. Jahrhundert, sie entstanden bei dem Versuch, algebmische Gleichungen zu lösen. So führte schon G. CARDANO (1545) formale Ausdrücke wie zum Beispiel 5 ± v'-15 ein, um Lösungen quadratischer und kubischer Gleichungen angeben zu können. R. BOMBELLI rechnete um 1560 bereits systematisch mit diesen Ausdrücken 3 und fand 4 als Lösung der Gleichung x = 15x + 4 in der verschlüsselten Form 4 = ~2 + v'-121 + ~2 - v'-121. Auch bei G. W. LEIBNIZ (1675) findet man Gleichungen dieser Art, wie z. B. VI + v'=3 + Vl- v'=3 = v'6. Im Jahre 1777 führte L. EULER die Bezeichnung i = A für die imaginäre Einheit ein. Der Fachausdruck "komplexe Zahl" stammt von C. F. GAUSS (1831). Die strenge Einführung der komplexen Zahlen als Paare reeller Zahlen geht auf W. R. HAMILTON (1837) zurück. Schon in der reellen Analysis ist es gelegentlich vorteilhaft, komplexe Zahlen einzuführen. Man denke beispielsweise an die Integration rationaler Funktio nen, die auf der Partialbruchentwicklung und damit auf dem Fundamentalsatz der Algebra beruht: Über dem Körper der komplexen Zahlen zerfällt jedes Polynom in ein Produkt von Linearfaktoren.

Complex Made Simple

Author: David C. Ullrich
Publisher: American Mathematical Soc.
ISBN: 9780821844793
Release Date: 2008
Genre: Mathematics

Perhaps uniquely among mathematical topics, complex analysis presents the student with the opportunity to learn a thoroughly developed subject that is rich in both theory and applications. Even in an introductory course, the theorems and techniques can have elegant formulations. But for any of these profound results, the student is often left asking: What does it really mean? Where does it come from? In Complex Made Simple, David Ullrich shows the student how to think like an analyst. In many cases, results are discovered or derived, with an explanation of how the students might have found the theorem on their own. Ullrich explains why a proof works. He will also, sometimes, explain why a tempting idea does not work. Complex Made Simple looks at the Dirichlet problem for harmonic functions twice: once using the Poisson integral for the unit disk and again in an informal section on Brownian motion, where the reader can understand intuitively how the Dirichlet problem works for general domains.Ullrich also takes considerable care to discuss the modular group, modular function, and covering maps, which become important ingredients in his modern treatment of the often-overlooked original proof of the Big Picard Theorem. This book is suitable for a first-year course in complex analysis. The exposition is aimed directly at the students, with plenty of details included. The prerequisite is a good course in advanced calculus or undergraduate analysis.
