Complex Numbers and Geometry
by Liang-shin Hahn

Provides a self-contained introduction to complex numbers and college geometry written in an informal style with an emphasis on the motivation behind the ideas... The author engages the reader with a casual style, motivational questions, interesting problems and historical notes. -Mathematical Reviews

The purpose of this book is to demonstrate that complex numbers and geometry can be blended together beautifully, resulting in easy proofs and natural generalizations of many theorems in plane geometry-such as the Napoleon theorem, the Ptolemy-Euler theorem, the Simson theorem, and the Morley theorem. Beginning with a construction of complex numbers, readers are taken on a guided tour that includes something for everyone, even those with advanced degrees in mathematics. Yet, the entire book is accessible to a talented high-school student.The book is self- contained-no background in complex numbers is assumed-and can be covered at a leisurely pace in a one semester course. Many of the chapters can be read independently. Over 100 exercises are included. The book would be suitable as a text for a geometry course, or for a problem solving seminar, or as enrichment for the student who wants to know more.
