Abstract. Magnetopause model is presented as a conformal mapping in the complex plane. The model is an analytic continuation of the power-law damped (or asymptotically elongated) parabolic shape constructed by Shue et al. (J. Geophys. Res., 102, 9497, 1997). The analytic expression of the magnetopause using the conformal mapping opens the door to properly map the magnetopause and magnetosheath coordinates from one model to another.

Short summary
Magnetopause is a boundary of magnetosphere. Many mathematical models have been proposed to describe or to reproduce the magnetopause location, but they are restricted to the real-number functions. In this work, we develop a magnetopause model in the complex-number domain, which is advantageous in deforming the magnetopause shape in a conformal (angle-preserving) way, and is suited to compare different models or map one model onto another.
