Here we follow Spiegel (1964) [1] or Levinson and Redheffer (1970). [2]

In complex analysis we may consider extending the domain of a given function which is analytic in a region by finding another function analytic in a region . If a region exists such that and if for all then we say that is the analytic continuation of into .
