Complex Analysis Summary

Complex Analysis by Joseph Bak

This unusual and lively textbook offers a clear and intuitive approach to the classical and beautiful theory of complex variables. With very little dependence on advanced concepts from several-variable calculus and topology, the text focuses on the authentic complex-variable ideas and techniques. Accessible to students at their early stages of mathematical study, this full first year course in complex analysis offers new and interesting motivations for classical results and introduces related topics stressing motivation and technique. Numerous illustrations, examples, and now 300 exercises, enrich the text. Students who master this textbook will emerge with an excellent grounding in complex analysis, and a solid understanding of its wide applicability.

Complex Analysis Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:

The book of the known mathematicians J. Bak and D. Newman is an excellent introduction into the theory of analytic functions of one complex variable. The book is written on an elementary level and so it supports students in the early stages of their mathematical studies. ... The book also contains many illustrations, examples and exercises, which give additional information and explanations. (Konstantin Malyutin, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1205, 2011)
