1. The algebra of complex numbers.
Let (
a,b
)
R
×
R
be pairs of real numbers with addition defined by (
a,b
)+(
c,d
) =(
a
+
c,b
+
d
) and multiplication defined by (
a,b
)
·
(
c,d
) = (
ac
bd,bc
+
ad
).
Proposition 1.1.
R
×
R
with these operations forms a field. The additive identity is 
(0
,
0)
and multiplicative identity is 
(1
,
0)
.
Proof.
The only thing to check is the existence of a multiplicative inverse. If (
a,b
)
= (0
,
0),then a calculation shows that (
aa
2
+
b
2
,
ba
2
+
b
2
) times (
a,b
) yields (1
,
0).We write
a
+
bi
for (
a,b
) and let
C
=
{
a
+
bi
:
a,b
R
}
. We can identify
R
with
{
a
+ 0
i
}
. Note also that
i
2
= (0
,
1)
·
(0
,
1) =
1. We usually write
wz
for
w
·
z
when
w,z
C
.We define
z
=
a
bi
if 
z
=
a
+
bi
, and this is called the complex conjugate of 
z
. Welet Re
z
=
a,
Im
z
=
b
, for
z
=
a
+
bi
. It is easy to check that
w
+
z
=
w
+
z
and
wz
=
wz
.We define
|
z
|
=
a
2
+
b
2
. It is then apparent that
|
z
|
0 and
|
z
|
2
=
zz
. Note that
|
ab
|
2
=
abab
=
aabb
=
|
a
|
2
|
b
|
2
, or
|
ab
|
=
|
a
||
b
|
.Note also that
|
a
+
b
|
2
= (
a
+
b
)(
a
+
b
) =
aa
+
bb
+ 2Re
ab
. It is clear that
−|
z
|
Re
z
|
z
|
and
−|
z
|
Im
z
|
z
|
. Using this, we obtain
|
a
+
b
|
2
(
|
a
|
+
|
b
|
)
2
, or
|
a
+
b
||
a
|
+
|
b
|
.
Cauchy’s inequality is the following.
Proposition 1.2.

n

.
Proof.
The result if obvious if 
|
b

|

= 0, so suppose not. We have0

and doing some algebra, we obtainthe inequality we seek.
2. The geometry of complex numbers.
A complex number
z
=
a
+
bi
is identified with (
a,b
)
R
2
. We can thus identify acomplex number with a point in the plane. If we let
r
=
|
z
|
=
a
2
+
b
2
and
ϕ
the anglebetween the
x
axis and the ray from 0 to
z
, measured in a counterclockwise direction fromthe
x
axis, then
z
in polar coordinates is (
r,ϕ
), and we have
a
=
r
cos
ϕ
,
b
=
r
sin
ϕ
. Wedefine arg
z
, the argument of 
z
, to be
ϕ
.If 
z
1
=
r
1
(cos
ϕ
1
+
i
sin
ϕ
1
) and
z
2
=
r
2
(cos
ϕ
2
+
i
sin
ϕ
2
), then a calculation togetherwith some trigonometry identities shows that
z
1
z
2
=
r
1
r
2
[(cos
ϕ
1
cos
ϕ
2
sin
ϕ
1
sin
ϕ
2
) +
i
(sin
ϕ
1
cos
ϕ
2
+ sin
ϕ
2
cos
ϕ
1
)]=
r
1
r
2
[cos(
ϕ
1
+
ϕ
2
) +
i
sin(
ϕ
1
+
ϕ
2
)]
.
We deducearg(
z
1
z
2
) = arg
z
1
+ arg
z
2
.
We will later give an analytic proof of this fact. However this is useful in doingcalculations. For example, the above plus induction shows that
z
n
=
r
n
(cos(
) +
i
sin(
))
.
To find the
n
th root of 
a
=
ρ
(cos
θ
+
i
sin
θ
), we set
z
n
=
a
, and comparing we find that
r
=
ρ
1
/n
=
|
a
|
1
/n
and
ϕ
= arg
z
=
θ/n
= (arg
a
)
/n
. For example,
i
has modulus 1 andargument
π/
2. So
i
will have modulus 1 and argument
π/
4, hence
i
=
22
+
i
22
.Sometimes we want to introduce a point at infinity
, and we refer to
C
∪{∞}
as the extended complex plane. We can give a geometric interpretation of the extendedplane through what is known as the stereographic projection. Consider the unit sphere
=
{
(
x
1
,x
2
,x
3
)
R
3
:
x
21
+
x
22
+
x
23
= 1
}
. To every point of 
with the exception of (0
,
0
,
1) (the north pole), we associate the complex number
z
= (
x
1
+
ix
2
)
/
(1
x
3
). Somealgebra shows that
|
z
|
2
=
x
21
+
x
22
(1
x
3
)
2
=1 +
x
3
1
x
3
,
and so
x
3
=
|
z
|
2
1
|
z
|
2
+ 1
.
More algebra shows that
x
1
=
z
+
z
1 +
|
z
|
2
, x
2
=
z
zi
(1 +
|
z
|
2
)
.
2
 
We then associate
to the point (0
,
0
,
1).The line through (0
,
0
,
1) and (
z
1
,z
2
,z
3
) is
{
(
tz
1
,tz
2
,t
(
z
3
1)+1 :
t
R
}
, and thisline crosses the plane
x
y
plane when
t
= 1
/
(1
z
3
), so
x
=
z
1
1
z
3
, y
=
z
2
1
z
3
.
This agrees with the equations above, so if we identify the complex plane with the (
x
1
,x
2
)plane, and
z
=
x
+
iy
, then the points (
x,y,
0), (
x
1
,x
2
,x
3
), and (0
,
0
,
1) are on a straightline. Thus drawing a straight line from the north pole of 
through the point (
x
1
,x
2
,x
3
)on
and extending it to the (
x
1
,x
2
) plane, the intersection with the (
x
1
,x
2
) plane is thepoint
z
.
3. Analytic functions.
The definition of limit and of continuous function needs no modification from thereal case. We define the derivative of a function
:
C
C
to be
(
z
) = lim
h
0
(
z
+
h
)
(
z
)
h.
The difference with the real case is that we require the limit to exist as
h
0 in
C
. Inother words, given
ε >
0 there exists
δ
such that
|
(
z
+
h
)
(
z
)
h
(
z
)
|
< ε
whenever
h
C
and
|
h
|
< δ
.A function
is analytic or holomorphic if 
(
z
) exists whenever
is defined.
Proposition 3.1.
(The Cauchy-Riemann equations)
Suppose 
(
z
) =
u
(
z
) +
iv
(
z
)
and
exists at
z
. Then
∂u∂x
(
z
) =
∂v∂y
(
z
)
,∂u∂y
(
z
) =
∂v∂x
(
z
)
.
Proof.
If 
(
z
) =
u
(
z
) +
iv
(
z
),
(
z
) exists, and we take the limit as
h
0 with
h
real,then
(
z
) =
∂u∂x
+
i∂v∂x.
If we let
h
=
ik
with
k
real and let
k
0, we similarly obtain
(
z
) = lim
k
0
(
z
+
ik
)
(
z
)
ik
=
i∂u∂y
+
∂v∂y.
Equating the two expressions for
(
z
), we obtain our result.Note

(
z
)

=
∂u∂x∂v∂y
∂u∂y∂v∂x,
