The study of functions of a complex variable. Often, the most natural proofs for statements in real analysis or even number theory use techniques from complex analysis. Unlike real functions, which are commonly represented as two-dimensional graphs, complex functions have four-dimensional graphs and may usefully be illustrated by color-coding a three-dimensional graph to suggest four dimensions.
