||Analytic continuation is a way of extending the domain over which a complex function is defined.
||An analytic function is a complex function that is complex differentiable at every point in a region.
||Complex analysis is the study of complex functions and their derivatives, manipulation, and other properties.
||A conformal mapping is a transformation in the complex plane that preserves local angles.
||In comlpex analysis, a pole is a singularity of a complex function.
||The Riemann sphere is a name given to the complex plane together with a point at infinity, which has the topology of a sphere.
||A Riemann surface is a surface that represents the domain of a multiple-valued complex function.
||In mathematics, a singularity is a point at which an equation, surface, etc., blows up or becomes degenerate. Singularities are often also called singular points.
