Textbook: Fundamentals of Complex Analysis with Applications to Engineering and Science, by E. B. Saff and A. D. Snider, 3rd ed.
Complex analysis is a classical and beautiful part of mathematics with numerous applications in mechanics, thermodynamics, electrostatics, fluid mechanics and many other sciences. The course and our textbook are tailored for mathematics, science and engineering students who completed the calculus sequence.
Grading: There will be three semester tests and the Final Exam. The break up of your course grade is as follows:
|Tests 1-3||60% (20% each)|
|F||59 and lower|
Attendance is mandatory in this class.
Homework will be assigned daily (see the detailed schedule below), and will be collected periodically. It is required that you complete all homework.
Extra Credit: I plan to give a number of extra credit problems. They will be optional, of course.
Make-up Exams are given only in cases of serious illness or extreme emergency that prevents you from taking a test at the specified time. You have to contact me before the test and communicate all circumstances.
University Syllabus Attachment: Contains drop deadlines and procedures, as well as many other important dates and university policies.
