Riemann Surface

 

one of the basic concepts of the theory of functions of a complex variable. The Riemann surface was introduced by B. Riemann in 1851 for the purpose of replacing the study of multiple-valued analytic functions by the study of single-valued analytic functions of a point on corresponding Riemann surfaces (seeANALYTIC FUNCTIONS).
