Course aims
To generalize basic notions and results known for functions of real variables for functions of a complex variable. To develop basic skills for solving problems, and to demonstrate different types of applications. Special attention is paid? to relations between the present course and previous courses in mathematical analysis.
Brief description of the course
Concept of function of complex variable, limit and continuity, analytical functions. Conformal mapping. Integral of complex variable functions. Cauchy Theorem. Cauchy Formula. Taylor and Laurent series. Singularity points and residues. Applications of residues.
Independent work
Homeworks on lecture materials, literature and problem solving. Preparations for classroom tests and final examination.
Learning outcomes in the course
Student knows mathematical facts and is able to use methods in volume of the subject.
Assessment methods
The examination grade is based on the total number of points gained from written tests completed during the semester and a final examination. The maximal number of points (100) is equally divided between current semester work and final examination.
