This book presents complex numbers in a stateoftheart 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 equationsolving, 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 selfstudy 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.
