The textbook is my notes from last couple of times teaching this, which are conveniently formatted as to pretend being a book:
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, many exercises have changed numbers, as have many other numbered items. There's lots of new exercises though, and some new pictures throughout as well as some new apendices.

Grading policy:

Grade is "for participation". 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 we get to in the lecture by say end of Monday or perhaps even Wednesday if you are adventurous. You should go through the homework, and work out whatever problems you can. Then we'll go over the homework and solutions in the homework session, or we'll actually solve some of the problems there.
