2These are the lecture notes of a one-semester undergraduate course which we have taught severaltimes at Binghamton University (SUNY) and San Francisco State University. For many of ourstudents, complex analysis is their ﬁrst rigorous analysis (if not mathematics) class they take,and these notes reﬂect this very much. We tried to rely on as few concepts from real analysis aspossible. In particular, series and sequences are treated “from scratch.” This also has the (maybedisadvantageous) consequence that power series are introduced very late in the course.We thank our students who made many suggestions for and found errors in the text. Specialthanks go to Collin Bleak, Jon Clauss, Sharma Pallekonda, and Joshua Palmatier for commentsafter teaching from this book.
