Abstract

To visualize the behavior of complex functions, we need four dimensions. We raise the question that has been neglected: “What does the Riemann sphere’s axis stand for?” The answer can be obtained by setting the immersive environment at the sphere’s origin, which is always undefined in projective geometry.
