Abstract

The bicomplex numbers are a generalization of the complex numbers and differ from the standard product of the complex plane with itself in that the product that is usually defined on them can be zero even though the factors are not. Despite this apparent complication, a theory surprisingly parallel to the single-variable complex analysis has emerged. We will point out some of these developments and possible areas for future study.
