Organisation and examination

Teaching in the first semester, review in January


Schedule online

Units courses prerequisite and corequisite

Prerequisite or corequisite units are presented within each program

Learning unit contents

The course is devoted to the elementary theory of functions of one complex variable.

Learning outcomes of the learning unit

At the end of the course the students should be acquainted with the basic properties of holomorphic functions of one complex variable and should be able to use these functions to solve various classical problems in mathematical analysis and physics.

Prerequisite knowledge and skills

A good understanding of previous analysis courses is essential.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

The course consists of blackboard lessons and exercises sessions.
During the lessons, the main theoretical results are introduced, established and illustrated with examples.
During the exercises sessions, the students are trained to solve by themselves various problems using the results considered in the lessons.
A few formative tests will be organised.

Mode of delivery (face to face, distance learning, hybrid learning)

Face-to-face course.

Recommended or required readings

Notes are handed out at the beginning of the course.
