### Is the imaginary part needed in this problem?

Before jumping into my question, let me contextualize it. I'm doing numerical simulations of a Helmholtz scattering problem $$\Delta p + \kappa^2 p = 0\, .$$ The incident pressure wave $p^{inc}$ will ...

### Numerically Recovering Imaginary Part of Analytic Continuation from Real Part

My situation. I have a function of a complex variable $f(z)$ defined through a complicated integral. What I am interested in is the value of this function on the imaginary axis. I have numerical ...

### How to calculate $\arg(z_1z_2\cdots z_n)$ to minimize results error?

As in title, which method is the most optimal for numerical calculating value of: $\arg(z_1z_2\cdots z_n)$? Method 1: one can first calculate $Z=z_1z_2\cdots z_n$ and then calculate $\arg(Z)$. ...

### Complex Integral Equation Solution in MATLAB

I need to solve an integral equation in the form: $$A(z)+\int\limits^{z_2}_{z_1}B(z') \frac{z^N}{z^N-z'^N} \frac{e^{i\beta}}{|z|}\mathrm{d}z'=0$$ where $A(z)$ distribution is known and we are ...

### Applicable solvers for nonlinear coupled PDEs

I've been trying to find an applicable PDE solver for cases such as this: Although when dealing with stiff equations in the complex domain, applying existing packages has been problematic. I've ...

### Are there special methods for solving $f'(z)=0$ for analytic $f$?

I am trying to solve a bunch of equations for the zeros of the derivative of an analytic function, and I would like to know if there exist methods that exploit this structure to provide better ...

### Complex Numerical Integration using GSL

I want to program an integration routine in C++ using the GSL library but for complex functions. How should I split my integrand to apply the gsl_integration_qag function on it. Just integrate the ...
I'm trying to do an integral of the form $\int_C f(u,v)$, where $C$ is a set of contours in $u$ and $v$. In particular, each variable's contour starts at $-\infty+i \epsilon$, goes around a branch ...
