Email: lebl at okstate dot edu

Problem session: Wednesday 3:30-4:20, room 519B


The textbook is my set of notes from last few times teaching the class, which is conveniently formatted as to pretend being a book. In fact, you can even get it in book form.

Tasty Bits of Several Complex Variables

If you want, you can also checkout the updated work-in-progress draft PDF for the next version. Be careful though, some exercises have changed numbers and some new sections are unfinished. I'll try to update this PDF as the semester goes through, though using the "published" non-draft one should be fine for vast majority of the time.

Grading policy:

Grade is "for participation", so A means "participated". Homework will be assigned and we will go over it in the problem session together. There will be no exams.


The homework is essentially whatever exercises are in the notes up to where we get to in the lecture a day or two before the homework session. Since the homework is not collected or graded, we don't have to be too specific. Just look at the problems, and try to work through as many as you have time for. Even if you don't go through anything for a particular week, look through the problems and we will try to go through the solutions in the homework session.
