Textbook: Saff - Snider: Fundamentals of Complex Analysis with Applications.
Prerequisite: Calculus III or equivalent (several variable calculus)
Corequisite: Calculus IV or equivalent (vector calculus)
The prerequisite is essential. The corequisite is very important: we
will make references to vector calculus repeatedly, you will be
significantly hampered in your understanding, without the
Drop In Tutorials!
Your final grade will be based on Homework assignments,
exams, and the final exam:
Midterm 1: 20%
Midterm 2: 20%
When computing your homework mark, the two lowest scores (out of 10)
will be dropped. No further concessions will be made, for any
(including medical) reasons.
If you miss one of the midterm exams for medical reasons, you need to
promptly inform the instructor, and provide a physician's note
specifically stating that you were medically unfit to write the missed
exam on that day. No make-up exams will be given.
