Office | SCEN 222 |

Course Description: Complex numbers, analytic functions, power series, complex integration, Cauchy's Theorem and integral formula, maximum principle, singularities, Laurent series, and Mobius maps.
Prerequisites: MATH 4513.
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.
I expect to have 11 assignments over the course of the semester; your two lowest scores will be dropped and the remaining 9 assignments will comprise 20% of your course grade.
Tests: There will be three midterms tests and a final exam. I plan to hold midterm exams during class time Weeks 5, 9 and 13, on February 19, March 18 and April 22.
The final exam will occur in our regular classroom at the time indicated on the registrar’s website.
Make-up exams will only be given in exceptional circumstances (at the instructor’s discretion), and then only when notice is given to the instructor beforehand and a suitable written excuse forthcoming.
If you require extra 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.
Course grade: Here is how I plan to weigh your grades:
Homework | 20% |
Midterm tests | 15% each |
Final | 35% |
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.
