In this talk, I will discuss complex numbers and complex analysis from a mathematician’s perspective. I will discuss how to understand complex numbers both algebraically and geometrically. We will see evidence of their inevitability and I will point out why that is a very, very good thing. From there, we will delve into (or lightly touch on) applications in math, physics, engineering, biology, etc. At this point, we will have a grounded understanding of complex numbers’ place in the pantheon, along with several remarkable and powerful applications. From there, I will pivot towards the types of problems that I work on. No background beyond familiarity with elementary school geometry and the words sine and cosine will be assumed.
