Roy first gives readers a background in Riemann's zeta function and von Magoldt's work on the xi functions, then turns to theory, explaining basic arithmetic functions, Argand diagrams, Euler identities, powers and logarithms, the hyperbolic function, standard integration with complex numbers, and line and contour integration.
Bell's classic Men of Mathematics close at hand, in case references to William Hamilton's quaternions or Georg Riemann's zeta function do not produce an immediate glimmer of recognition.
The elemental primal resonances are described by very special complex numbers, and this is where Riemann's zeta function makes its magical appearance.
