Course Description: Analytic continuation, harmonic functions, and entire functions.
Prerequisites: MATH 5523, and graduate standing in mathematics or statistics, or departmental consent.
Text: Function Theory of One Complex Varible, Third Edition, by Robert E. Greene and Steven G. Krantz.
Homework: Assignments will be posted to this course website. The complete assignment will be posted at least four days before the due date.
Contingent on satisfactory completion of course evaluations, your 9 best assignment scores will comprise 20% of your course grade and the remaining scores will be dropped.
Tests: There will be three midterms tests and a final exam. I plan to hold midterm exams during class time on the dates indicated in the calendar above. If a sizeable majority of the students find a listed exam time unsuitable (for example, because they have other exams on that date), I am willing to reschedule the exams; however, you must make this request at least two weeks before either your currently suggested date or your requested replacement date.
The final exam will occur in our regular classroom at the time indicated on the registrar’s website.
If you require accommodations on an exam, notify your instructor as soon as possible, but in all cases at least one week before the exam is to be held. Documentation from the CEA will be required.
Make-up exam requests also require written documentation as to your conflict. Except in the case of medical or other unforeseen emergencies, make-up exam requests must be made at least one week before the exam is to be held. Make-up exams are at the instructor's discretion; if you do not provide a documented reason why you cannot take the exam at the usual time, if your reason is considered inadequate, or if your request for a make-up exam is not made in a timely fashion, I reserve the right to refuse a make-up exam or to assess a late penalty (deduction from your score).
Course grade: Here is how I plan to weigh your grades:
Homework | 20% |
Course participation | 5% |
Midterm tests | 15% each |
Final | 30% |
Incompletes: Only given in extreme circumstances, and only when the student has satisfactorily completed all but a small portion of the work in the course. Students must make prior arrangements with the professor well before the end of the semester.
Academic Integrity: All students will be bound by and should familiarize themselves with the university's academic integrity policy.
