This is a very tentative list and the later assignments will almost certainly change!  Please re-check this page before doing each homework assignment!

bullet

Please observe the following neatness guidelines for homework that you turn in to be graded; homework not conforming to these guidelines will not receive full credit and may not be graded at all.

  1. Use clean, white paper (preferably ruled) that is not torn from a spiral notebook.

  2. Write your name clearly on the front page of your completed assignment.

  3. Write clearly and legibly.

  4. Clearly number each solution and present them in numerical order.

bulletProblems are from Brown and Churchill, "Complex Variables and Applications,"  9th edition unless otherwise indicated.
If I write
S2:  3, 4, 10 : it means do problems 3, 4 and 10 at the end of Section 2 of the 9th ed. of the book.
