Complex Analysis

Dr. Taha MAhdy

Complex analysis importance

  • Complex analysis has not only transformed the world of mathematics, but surprisingly, we find its application in many areas of physics and engineering.

  • For example, we can use complex numbers to describe the behavior of the electromagnetic field.

  • In atomic systems, which are described by quantum mechanics, complex numbers and complex functions play a central role,

What is a complex number

  • It is a solution for the equation

The Algebra of Complex Numbers

  • More general complex numbers can be written down. In fact, using real numbers a and b we can form a complex number:

    c = a + ib

  • We call a the real part of the complex number c and refer to b as the imaginary part of c.

Addition , subtraction, multiplication

Complex conjugate

  • The complex conjugate is:

  • Note that

Complex conjugate

Division is defiened in terms of conjugate of the denominator

Graphical representation of complex number

Complex Variables

  • A Complex Variable can assume any complex value

  • We use z to represent a complex variable.

    z = x + jy

  • We can graph complex numbers in the x-y plane, which we sometimes call the complex plane or the z plane.

  • We also keep track of the angleθ that this vector makes with the real axis.

Very Important complex transformations

It appears that complex numbers are not so “imaginary” after all;

The Polar Representation

  • Let z = x + iy is the Cartesian representation of a complex number.

  • To write down the polar representation, we begin with the definition of the polar coordinates (r,θ ):

    x = r cosθ ; y = r sinθ

The Polar Representation

The Polar Representation

  • Note that r > 0 and that we have

  • tanθ = y / x as a means to convert between polar and Cartesian representations.

  • The value of θ for a given complex number is called the argument of z or arg z.



  • Euler’s formula allows us to write the expression cosθ + i sinθ in terms of a complex exponential.

  • This is easy to see using a Taylor series expansion.

  • First let’s write out a few terms in the well-known Taylor expansions of the trigonometric functions cos and sin:

Note the similarity



  • These relationships allow us to write a complex number in complex exponential form or more commonly polar form. This is given by
