Advice on complex analysis, Riemann surface & complex mappings.

  1. Jan 28, 2008 #1
    Could anybody please give advice for the study of complex analysis, Riemann surfaces & complex mappings. These subjects form the content of chapters 7 & 8 of Roger Penrose's "The Road to Reality". Any advice will do: maybe suggestions on books to supplement the learning, or books to further my study once I have grasped the principles, or anything else.

    cartan includes this as well (see pages 188-207). if you want a more thorough, rigorous, high level treatment, try gunning's lectures on riemann surfaces, or the chapter on the topic in griffiths and harris's principles of algebraic geometry.
