Pure Maths Colloquium: Continued fractions -old and new

Presented by "Alan Beardon (University of Cambridge, Cambridge)",

7 May 2001 00:00 in CM221

"The classical value of a continued fraction is the limit of its partial quotients. This definition is too restrictive and a complex continued fraction is best viewed as a specials sequence of Mobius maps. We apply hyperbolic, and inversive, geometry to get a new insight into continued fractions."
