I will post all handouts, problem sets, etc. on the web
- Complex Numbers (§1.1-1.6)
- Analytic Functions (§2.1-2.5)
- Elementary Functions (§3.1-3.3, 3.5)
- Complex Integration (§4.1-4.6)
- Series Representations for Analytic Functions (§5.1-5.3,5.5,5.6)
- Residue Theory (§6.1-6.3)
There will be two midterms (tentatively scheduled for Wednesday,
February 8 and Wednesday, March 14)
each accounting for about 25% of the final mark.
There will be weekly problem sets accounting for about 10% of the final mark.
The final exam will account for about 40% of the final mark.
Grades will probably be scaled.
Missing a homework or midterm normally results in a mark of 0.
Exceptions may be granted in two cases: prior consent of the instructor
or a medical emergency. In the latter case, the instructor must be
notified within 48 hours of the missed test, and presented with a doctor's
note immediately upon the student's return to UBC.
