Analytic Function

A Function in the Complex Numbers $\Bbb{C}$ is analytic on a region $R$ if it is Complex Differentiable at every point in $R$. The terms Holomorphic Function and Regular Function are sometimes used interchangeably with ``analytic function.'' If a Function is analytic, it is infinitely Differentiable.
