Arguably the Riemann sphere is the nicest and most natural domain to do calculations in (and to do function theory on), so in that sense I applaud Skynet's choice of domain :-)

Asking ambiguous questions and expecting unambiguous answers is just another case of GiGo. Blame your expectations, not the tool.

If your comments are a reply to my question (I honestly can't tell), I can say, with absolutely no offence meant at all, that it doesn't help (me) one bit.

What is a Riemann sphere? Compactified complex plane?

Maybe it's best for us non-math genius folks playing along at home to simply move along, lol.

Other than number theory, in what context or application does this stuff apply?
