This course serves as an introductory course in Complex Analysis in our Mathematics program.
It focuses on the major classical results of this field: Cauchy-Riemann Equations, Cauchy's Theorem,
Cauchy's Formula, Morera's Theorem, Liouville's Theorem and the Residue Theorem. Also, Linear
Fractional Transformations and Conformal Mapping will be seen. Lastly, Fourier Transforms and Laplace
Transforms and their properties will be introduced.
A graphing calculator is required in this course.
There will be approximately 12 weekly homework assignments.
Three tests will be given during the semester.
The (compulsory) final exam will be comprehensive.
All tests and the final exam will be closed book tests with the use of
the calculator permitted and required.
The homework assignments must be written on 81/2 by 11 paper and stapled.
Students will write their tests and final exam on provided test forms.
Late homework will not be accepted.
Make up tests will be given only in exceptional circumstances. Students must make the request
for a make up test several days before the original class-scheduled test.
Students must attend all lectures. Attendance will be verified every lecture.
Students who miss more than four lectures will be withdrawn from the the
course (with a grade of WF if before March 18 or with a grade of F after this date).
The course grade for each student will be the best of the two following evaluations:
Test 1 20%
Test 2 20%
Test 3 20%
Final Exam 35%
Best Test 20%
Second Best Test 20%
