    Hey gamerahmad2.

    Complex analysis is basically applying calculus to complex variables which have two independent numbers and an extra condition where i^2 = -1.

    This complicates things a lot and you need to develop a new set of methods to be able to integrate and differentiate complex variables with respect to other ones.

    "Differentiability" for complex numbers gives a lot more properties than for real numbers. While you do deal with non-differentiable functions in Complex Analysis they simply are not very interesting!
