Functions of a Complex Variable (SP17)

Functions of a Complex Variable (SP17)


Welcome to our Math 43 Canvas Page.  One of the formulas we'll shortly make sense out of is e^{i\pi}+1=0 e i π + 1 = 0 e i π + 1 = 0 eiπ+1=0eiπ+1=0.  It gathers five of the most common constants in mathematics together in one formula. John Kemeny, Dartmouth's 13th president, liked it so much, he had it drawn on the blackboard behind him in his presidential portrait in Baker Library:


After learning enough about complex arithmetic to understand Kemeny's formula, we'll move on to the calculus of complex valued functions of a complex variable.  I hope you'll enjoy the subject as much as I do.

I am new to canvas, so I am not sure how much functionality we'll get out of this page.  I would appreciate suggestions as the term progresses.  For example, are their features on your other canvas pages you'd like to see implemented here?

In the meantime, our main source of information about the course will be the course web page.
