Poicer Series Expansions 1. There are no radical innovations in the new edition. The author still believes strongly in a geometric approach to the basics, and for this reason i the introductory chapters are virtually unchanged. Misprints and minor errors that have come to my attention have been corrected.
Otherwise, the main differences between l.v.ahlforss second ‘tod third editions can be summarized as follows: Notations and terminology have been modernized, but it did not ffteem necessary to change the style in any significant way.

To some degree this infringes on the otherwise self-contained exposition, for it forces the reader to fall back on Calculus for the definition and manipulation of double integrals. The advantage is minor. In Chapter 4 there is a new and simpler proof of the general l.v.zhlfors of Ipauchy’s theorem. It is due to A.
Large parts of Chapter 8 have been completely rewritten. The main purpose was to introduce the reader to the terminology of germs and sheaves while emphasizing all the classical concepts. It goes without saying that nothing beyond the basic notions of sheaf theory ll.v.ahlfors have been compatible with the elementary nature of the book.

The author has successfully resisted the temptation to include Riemann surfaces as one-dimensional complex manifolds. The book would lose much of its usefulness if it went beyond its purpose of being no more than an introduction to the basic methods and results of complex function theory in the plane.
It is my pleasant duty to thank the many who have helped me by pointing out misprints, weaknesses, and errors in the second edition. I am particularly grateful to my colleague Lynn Loomis, who kindly let me share student reaction to a recent course based on my book. Zero is the only number which is at once real and purely imaginary.
Two complex numbers are equal if and only if they have the same real part and the same imaginary part. Addition and multiplication do not lead out from the Bystem of complex numbers.
It is less obvious that division is also possible. We shall now show that the square root of a j; complex number can be found explicitly. We must therefore be careful jjeot x and y so that their product has the sign of 0. This leads to the BWU: It is understood that all square roots of positive numbers are taken with the positive sign.
We have found that the square root of any complex number exists and has two opposite values. In other words, except for zero, only positive numbers have real square roots and only negative numbers have purely imaginary square roots. Since both square roots are in general complex, it is not possible to distinguish between the positive and negative square root of a complex number.
We could of course distinguish between the upper and lower sign in 6but this distinction is artificial and should be avoided. The correct way is to treat both square roots in a symmetric manner.

So far our approach to complex numbers has been completely uncritical. L.v.ahlfors begin by recalling the characteristic properties of the real-number Bystem which we denote by R. In the first place, R is a field. Also, every field is an integral domain: Although the above characterization of a field is complete, it obviously does not convey much to a student who is not already at least vaguely fa mili ar with the concept.
From these conditions one derives all the usual rules for manipulation of inequalities.
Fin ally, R satisfies the folio wing completeness condition: Our discussion of the real-number system is incomplete inasmuch as we have not proved the existence and uniqueness up to isomorphisms of a system R with the postulated properties, f The student who is not thoroughly familiar with one of the constructive processes by which real numbere can be introduced should not fail to fill this gap by consulting any textbook in which a full axiomatic treatment of real numbers is given.
Let C be the subset of. What is more, the structure of C is independent of F. It is thus demonstrated that C and C’ are isomorphic. We now define the field of complex numbers to be the subfield C of an arbitrarily given F.
We have just seen that the choice of F makes no difference, but we have not yet shown that there exists a field F with the required properties. There are many ways in which such a field can be constructed. The simplest and most direct method is the following: Show that the system of all matrices of the special form combined by matrix addition and matrix multiplication, is isomorphic to the field of complex numbers.
ConjugationAbsolute Value. A number is reaUf and transform? The absolute value of a product is equal to the product of the absolute values of the factors. It is clear that this property extends to arbitrary finite products: We shall now prove some important inequalities which will be of constant use.
This is called the triangle inequality for reasons wlii By induction it can be extended to arbitrary sums: The reader is well aware of the importance of the estimate 11 in the real case, and we shall find it no less important in the theory of complex bombers. Let us determine all cases of equality in But the numbering of the terms is arbitrary; thus the ratio of any two nonzero terms must be positive.
Suppose conversely that this condition is fulfilled. Of course the same estimate can be applied to a 4- 6. If this condition is fulfilled, what are the smallest and largest values of 14?
This representation is constantly used, and we shall often speak of the point a as a synonym of the number a. The first coordinate axis x-axis takes the name of real axis, and the second coordinate axis y-axis is called the imaginary axis. The plane itself is referred to as the complex plane. The geometric representation derives its usefulness from the vivid mental pictures associated with a geometric language.
We take the point of view, however, that all conclusions in analysis should be derived from the properties of real numbers, and not from the axioms of geometry. For this reason we shall use geometry only for descriptive purposes, and not for valid proof, unless the language is so thinly veiled that the analytic interpretation is self-evident. This attitude relieves us from the exigencies of rigor in connection with geometric considerations.
To this end we let a complex number be represented not only by a point, but also by a vector pointing from the origin to the point. The number, the point, and the vector will all be denoted by the same letter a.
As usual we identify all vectors which can be obtained from each other by parallel displacements. Place a second vector b so that its initial point coincides with the end point of a. To construct the difference ft — a we draw both vectors a and 6 from the same initial point; then ft — a points from the end point of a to the end point of ft. An additional advantage of the vector representation is that the length of the vector a is equal to [a[. Hence the distance between the points a and ft is ja — ft.
The point a and its conjugate d lie symmetrically with respect to the real axis. The four points a, —a, —a,d are the vertices of a rectangle which is symmetric with respect to both axes. In order to derive a geometric interpretation of the product of two complex numbers we introduce polar coordinates.
It is clear that this formula can be extended to arbitrary products, and we can therefore state:
