How can I explicitly construct a *nice* conformal mapping from a triangle to a square in MATLAB?

I know the basics of the Riemann mapping theorem, SC maps, etc. I can look up formulae for the maps from the half-plane to a triangle or rectangle. But I want a particularly nice explicit map--easily ...

How do zeros on the complex plane affect the real number line?

Let's say there is a real-valued "signal" that you can only measure at discrete points $f(x)$. You have a theory that this signal is the result of an analytic function $f(z)$ on the complex plane but, ...
