Course Code: MATH-306

Complex Analysis

Prerequisite(s): Calculus-II

Credit Hours: 3+0

Objectives of the course: 

This is an introductory course in complex analysis, giving the basics of the theory along with

applications, with an emphasis on applications of complex analysis and especially conformal mappings. Students should have a background in real analysis (as in the course Real Analysis I), including the ability to write a simple proof in an analysis context.
