Welcome to Math 220c!
Course description:

This is the third in a threesequence graduate course on complex analysis, picking up where Math 220B left off.
 Topics include: analytic continuation, sheaves of analytic functions, analytic manifolds (Riemann surfaces), harmonic/subharmonic/superharmonic functions, order of entire functions, the little/big Picard theorem.
Instructor: Dragos Oprea, doprea "at" math.youknowwhere.edu.
Online lectures: WF 11:0012:20.
Virtual office hours: Wednesday 12:301:30.
Teaching Assistant: Nandagopal Ramachandran, naramach "at" ucsd.
 Virtual office Hours: Thursday, 57pm.
Online teaching:
 The lectures will be given synchronously. Class sessions will be recorded and later made available on Canvas. Sharing the recordings or the links to the recordings with anyone is prohibited.
Textbook: Functions of One Complex Variable, by J. B. Conway.
Additional Reading: Complex Analysis, by Lars Ahlfors.Prerequisites:
 Math 220 B. However, this is a graduate level course, so at times, we may use notions from related fields, including topology and real analysis. I am happy to discuss prerequisites on an individual basis. If you are unsure, please don't hesitate to contact me.
 The final grade is based on homework.
The problem sets are
mandatory and are a very important part of the
course.
Qualifying Examination: Wednesday, May 27, 14pm.

The exam is open book (Conway)/open notes (from lectures). No outside help (including internet, collaboration, etc) is allowed. The exam will be emailed shortly before 1pm and will also be released on Gradescope. At the end of the 3 hours, you will need to upload the exam on Gradescope. There will be a 15 minute buffer period to allow everybody to upload the exams. In person followups are possible to ensure A.I.
Important dates:
 First class: Wednesday, April 1.
 Memorial Day: Monday, May 25.
 Last class: Friday, June 5.
 Qualifying Exam: Wednesday, May 27, 14pm
