Learning Outcomes

After passing the course the student: - recognizes elementary functions and their properties and is able to solve equations consisting of elementary functions. - can decide when a function is analytic and knows the main features of such functions - is able to calculate complex integrals using the definition, the fundamental theorem of analysis, and Cauchy's integral theorem and formulas. - can find the Laurent's series for a given function,and knows when the series represent the original function. - can find zeros and poles of a function from its Laurent's series - can compute complex integrals using residues - can make logical conclusions, i.e., is able to make mathematical proofs
