# Complex numbers

$\begin{gather*} 1 = e^{2 \pi i}, \quad m \ddot{z} = -z | z | - i, \quad i \frac{\partial \psi}{\partial t} = k \frac{\partial^2 \psi}{\partial x^2} + V(x) \psi \\ \mathscr{F}[f](s) = \int_{-\infty}^{\infty} f(x) e^{-2 \pi i s x} dx, \quad f'(w) = \frac{1}{2 \pi i} \oint_{\partial \Omega : \Omega \ni w} \frac{f(z)}{(z-w)^2} dz \\ \ddot{z} = \frac{-z}{|z|^3} \end{gather*}$

## Project information

Topics due October 31st. See details here

• If you record your presentation with zoom, it will kaltura automatically once the video has been compressed.
1. Set the video publishing permissions to "unlisted" so that you can share the content but it won't be advertised as being publicly available.
2. You should be able to copy the link to your presentation video and send it to me by email now.
• If zoom doesn't work for you, I've opened up our course canvas page with a dropbox where you can upload your video.

### Computing and Visualizations

• Hutchinson-Wright example of solving a complex transcendental equation.
• Cosine map $$\cos(z)$$ illustrating how cosine transforms the complex plane.
• Exponential function $$\exp(z)$$ argument plot with code.
• Visual demonstration of the properties of $$\exp(-1/z^{2})$$ for real and complex inputs. For complex inputs, this function exhibits whats called an essential singularity at $$z=0$$.

• Argument plot for a random 5-root polynomial. Roots are where the color map is singular. Sample python code to draw this plot is here.

• An online interpretter for the python programming language that can be used as a basic complex-number calculator.

• You may also be interested in installing the excellent, free, and widely used program Spyder, which gives a nicer environment for working with math in python.

• Sympy is a free interactive symbolic algebra programming package that can can be used to study many of our equations. You can experiment with it using Sympy live before installing and using your own version in Spyder.

• Virtual Math Museum visualizations of complex plane transformations

• A winding number visualization, for when we get to winding numbers...

### Textbook Typos

We've encountered a few typographical issues with our textbook. This is the 2003 2nd edition of "Introduction to Complex Analysis" by H. A. Priestley, ISBN 0198525621.

• If you are using an electronic version of the textbook, be aware that some versions lose some of the overlines indicating conjugation. This particularly effects Exercises 5.11(i) and 6.6(iii)
• Page 76, equation line 3 is missing a summation for n from 1 to $$\infty$$.
• Page 124, in the first line in the main equation of the fundamental theorem of calculus proof, we should be integrating $$F'(z)$$, not $$F(z)$$.
• Page 263, Figure 21.3 caption: should be contour for $$\mathcal{L}^{-1}(1/\sqrt{p})$$
