Is there in a nutshell an explanation or even a single reason why complex numbers have so many fascinating consequences and give rise to so much deep stuff like analytic functions (with all its stunning properties), Riemann surfaces, analytic continuations, modular forms, zeta function, its central role in quantum physics and many more?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
