**Holomorphic Function** > s.a. Meromorphic Function.

* __Idea__: A complex function *f*(*z*)
= *u*(*x*,*y*) + i *v*(*x*,*y*),
where *z* = *x* + i *y* and *u* and *v* are
real functions satisfying the Cauchy-Riemann conditions,

∂_{x }*u*
= ∂_{y} *v*
and ∂_{y} *u*
= −∂_{x} *v* ,
or *J*^{ a}_{b}
∇_{a} *f*
= i ∇_{b} *f* ,

where *J* is a complex structure.

* __Applications__: Complex transformations
in electromagnetism; Segal-Bargmann transform in quantum mechanics; The Segal-Bargmann
transform or heat transform maps a square-integrable function on a Euclidean space to
a solution to the heat equation, and this solution can be extended holomorphically to
the complexification (> s.a coherent states).

**Analytic Functions and Mappings** > s.a. Argument
Principle; conformal transformations.

$ __Cauchy theorem__: Given a complex function *f*,
for all contours *C *which are homotopically trivial in the domain of analyticity of *f*,

More generally, if the only singularities inside *C* are isolated poles
of *f*, the integral is equal to 2π times the sum of the residues at those points.

* __Schwarz transformation__:
A map *f *: \(\mathbb C\) → \(\mathbb C\) which is analytic
except at a finite set of points, and maps a polygon to the real line.
