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.

Review: Visual Complex Analysis

User Review  - James Van alstine - Goodreads

Very unique take on complex analysis. This is a great read for a physicist. That is, it is seriously lacking in mathematical rigor. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to develop an intuitive ... Read full review

This book is a gem. If you want a feel for complex analysis and want to experience the motivation behind some fuzzy concepts that are introduced in terse texts, then this book is for you. This book will show you the beauty that is complex analysis. Read full review
