MATH 406: Advanced Calculus for Engineers / Scientists II
 Applied Complex Analysis 
Penn State University
Spring Semester 2005
“As early as the 16th century
mathematicians were compelled to introduce expressions
for square roots of negative numbers
in order to solve all quadratic and cubic equations.
But they were at a loss to explain the exact meaning
of these expressions, which they regarded with superstitious awe.”
