This is the course that should teach students thoroughly Complex
Analysis. They should know not only theorems, but also their proofs.
Moreover, the students should be able to solve appropriate problems
that start with "Prove that ...". In particular, after this course
the students should be able to pass the Math 53000 Qualifying Exam (if
- 1.1: The algebra of complex numbers;
- 1.2: The geometric representation of complex numbers;
- 2.1: Introduction to the concept of analytic function;
- 2.2: Elementary theory of power series;
- 2.3: The exponential and trigonometric functions;
- 3.2: Conformality;
- 3.3: Linear transformations;
- 4.1: Fundamental theorems;
- 4.2: Cauchy's integral formula;
- 4.3: Local properties of analytical functions;
- 4.4: The general form of Cauchy's theorem;
- 4.5: The calculus of residues;
- 4.6: Harmonic functions;
- 5.1: Power series expansions.
Each week there will be homework assigned, to be submitted for
grading. The homework scores will constitute 30% of the total score.
There will be two tests (after Chapters 3 and 4). The test scores will
constitute 40% of the total score. There will be also
a comprehensive final examination. The final exam score will
constitute 30% of the total score.
You need approximately 80% of the maximum possible score for A-,
66.7% for B-, 53.3% for C-, and 40% for D-.
Final Examination: Thursday, May 5, 3:30 - 5:30 pm.
Withdrawal deadline: Friday, April 1. Details can be found
Academic Integrity: The IUPUI Department of Mathematical
Sciences expects all students to adhere to the regulations put forth
in the "IUPUI Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct"
concerning academic or personal misconduct. The Code of Conduct can be
Cheating on assignments and tests or other academic works is a
violation of university policy. Any behavior that is construed as
cheating or academic dishonesty will not be tolerated in this course.
This includes, but it is not limited to, plagiarism, cheating during
exams, acquisition of tests or other academic materials, as well as
aiding and abetting others in committing the violation. The classroom
protocol will be guided by the Student Code of Conduct which, among
other things, asserts IUPUI's commitment "to maintain[ing] a spirit of
civility in a community in which diversity is welcomed. Every student,
staff, and faculty member plays a significant role in promoting an
environment that is conducive to academic excellence by fostering a
climate of civility and mutual respect."
