## Complex Analysis with MATHEMATICA®Complex Analysis with Mathematica offers a new way of learning and teaching a subject that lies at the heart of many areas of pure and applied mathematics, physics, engineering and even art. This book offers teachers and students an opportunity to learn about complex numbers in a state-of-the-art computational environment. The innovative approach also offers insights into many areas too often neglected in a student treatment, including complex chaos and mathematical art. Thus readers can also use the book for self-study and for enrichment. The use of Mathematica enables the author to cover several topics that are often absent from a traditional treatment. Students are also led, optionally, into cubic or quartic equations, investigations of symmetric chaos, and advanced conformal mapping. A CD is included which contains a live version of the book, and the Mathematica code enables the user to run computer experiments. |

### What people are saying - Write a review

I purchased this book. This is a book about Complex Analysis (refer as CA) The book should have been better checked for misspellings as it has many, some are spelt correctly in a chapter then misspelled often several times in the same chapter. I believe that spell check was never deplored in its production. There are also a few made-up words. The author says that he is actively developing and to check for updates and errata, there are no erratas and no updates which is a big pity because I am really trying to like the work. It is a pity that many of the more complex example do not work (even for Mathematica version 6) that it claims to to updated for. My overall impression was that this was rushed or hobbled together from bits from the author to make a book. The full colour pictures are very artistic so this book might interest people other than people with an interest in Pure Mathematics. The book starts out at a gentle enough pace and from chapter one (if you can really call it that) the author separates more advanced concepts from the normal this is now chapter two yet these advanced pale in complexity to what comes later with generating these beautiful but complex images with quite technical mathematica programs needed to generate them. Chapters 3-7 can be ignored (these are heavy on graphics) for a conventional course on CA, It follows most course structures well with Cauchy's Integral Formulas showing their full prominence as it should and from here the book really start to take off in its interest. Up to that point the book was OK but now gets a lots better and harder. There are areas covered that would not be in an undergraduate course in the latter chapters. Laplace Transforms are covered as well. A compact Disc in included in the books jacket that also included the full book in digital form as a number of mathematica workbooks. These are all in the workbook folder in 24 separate chapters. A final word a commendable effort that I can see a lot of work went into but sadly let down by a huge number of typos this book desperately needs a thorough update to the more recent versions of mathematica currently at 11.3. This is always going to be a problem if you type software with a book it will go out of date.
