MATH 410 Complex Analysis for Mathematics and Engineering (3)

A succinct stand-alone course description (up to 400 words) to be made available to students through the on-line Bulletin and Schedule of Courses.
This is a complex analysis course designed for students in mathematics, applied mathematics, engineering, science, and related fields. Topics include complex numbers; analytic functions, complex differentiability, and the Cauchy-Riemann equations; complex exponential, logarithmic, power, and trigonometric functions; complex contour integrals; Cauchy’s theorem; Cauchy’s integral formula; Taylor and Laurent series; residue theory; and various applications in areas of science and engineering.

This course focuses on the definitions, concepts, calculation techniques, supporting theory, and examples of applications suited to the usage of complex analysis in mathematics, applied mathematics, science, and engineering.

Students who have passed MATH 406 or MATH 421 may not take this course for credit.
