This book presents complex numbers in a state-of-the-art computational environment. Its innovative approach also offers insights into areas too often neglected in a student treatment, including complex chaos, mathematical art, physics in three or more dimensions, and advanced fluid dynamics.

Integration with Mathematica allows topics not usually presentable on a blackboard, such as iterative equation-solving, as well as full graphical exploration of all areas covered. The included CD contains a live version of the book with all of the Mathematica code, allowing users to run computer experiments.

Teachers can utilize the book for a traditional course, with Mathematica as a tool for illustration or for checking. Readers will enjoy it for self-study and enrichment.

Downloads, tips, reviews, and other information are available at the book's web page.

Additional Mathematica 6 notebooks to accompany this book are available in the Wolfram Library Archive. Contents
