This chapter is devoted to an important method for constructing holomorphic functions. The tool is convergent power series. It is the basis for the introduction of new non-algebraic holomorphic functions, called elementary transcendental functions. It will turn out that all holomorphic functions are described (at least locally) by this tool. This will be proven in the next chapter.
