Channeling my inner James Tanton

In the following video, I answer a question posed to me by my friend Alla Margolina. The format is meant to pay homage to James Tanton who—when he is isn’t folding toilet paper—is writing some mighty fine books and recording engaging videos where the mantra is to simply have fun. There will be another video up soon that explores the consequences of this diagram a little more.

At long last…

It only took a little over a year, but I finally got my collection of complex analysis lectures online. Sadly, two of the lectures mysteriously disappeared. In any case, as far as I know, this is the only (near) complete collection of videos on introductory complex analysis available online. Thanks to all the students who wrote me over the past year requesting I put these up. I wouldn’t have done it without your prompting.

For those who don’t know what complex analysis is, let me quickly summarize the idea as doing calculus but with functions of a complex variable. Cool things happen in this world that don’t normally happen. For instance, differentiable functions are automatically infinitely differentiable. Also, there is a certain theory called residue theory which enables one to use complex integration to solve real integration problems.

Greek Alphabet for Ms. Claypool

This isn’t with my son (he was too shy to sing with me), but it should give you an idea of why I stick to math instead of musical theater.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
