I wouldn't really call it a review. And you really should keep
reminding us that you are not talking of standard complex
analysis because otherwise we are bound to misunderstand.
It is much harder to unlearn what we already know than to
learn something new.

Imagine a person with a gift of ridicule [He might say] First that a
negative quantity has no logarithm; secondly that a negative quantity has
no square root; thirdly that the first non-existent is to the second as the
circumference of a circle is to the diameter. Augustus de Morgan
