Riemann • Riemann Surfaces Guide

This guide is made to accompany the Riemann Surfaces video.

Interactive Animations

These animations require the Wolfram CDF player:

  • Movable Squaring Path — When the path does not include the center point (the origin), the double-sheeted nature of square roots doesn't come up.
  • The Essential Singularity — e1/z
  • Double Logarithm — Two logarithmic singularities near each other. Only a few sheets are shown, but there are really an infinite number of levels.

Discussion

There was a Q+A session of around 45 minutes after the presentation. (download)
