Text: E.B. Saff and A.D. Snider: Fundamentals of Complex Analysis with Applications to Engineering and Science, Pearson, 3rd Edition, 2003.
Course Description :
Topics include complex numbers, complex derivatives and analyticity, elementary functions, contour integration, Cauchy's theorem, Cauchy's Integral Formula, power series, Laurent series, singularities and residues. We will cover most of chapters 1-6 in the text, including sections: 1.1-1.6, 2.1-2.5, 3.1-3.3, 3.5, 4.1-4.6, 5.1-5.6, 6.1-6.3.
Your course mark will be based on homework (15%), the midterms (35%) and the final exam (50%).
Missed Exam Policy: Please make sure you do not make travel plans, work plans, etc., without regard to the examination schedule in this class. There will be no make-up or alternate exams.
If you miss a midterm, your score will be recorded as 0, unless you have a serious documented reason (an illness, a death in the family, etc.), in which case you should discuss your circumstances with me as soon as possible, and in advance of the test.
Missed finals are not handled by the Instructor or the Mathematics Department. Students with legitimate reasons for missing the final exam should request a "Standing Deferred" status through their Faculty.
Academic Integrity: The Mathematics Department strictly enforces UBC's Academic Integrity Code.
Homework Assignments: Homework will be assigned weekly (approximately) and collected at the beginning of class on Wednesdays. A portion of each assignment will be graded by the course marker. Late homework will not be accepted. The lowest homework grade will be dropped. Students are allowed to consult one another concerning homework problems, but solutions submitted for credit must be written by the student in his or her own words. Copying solutions from another student, from the web or from any other source, and turning them in as your own is a violation of the Academic Code.
Students with Disabilities: Please see the Instructor as soon as possible if you need any special accommodations
