Office hours: M1-2, WF11-12

Teaching assistant: Robert Juhlin, email:, office hours M3-4, W11-12

Computation of grade: The grade is computed from your scores in the final (50%), 2 midterms (20%) and homework (10%). Although homework counts comparatively little, it is extremely important that you do it, as most of the exam problems will be very similar to homework problems. It is OK to compare homework notes or to discuss problems with other students; just copying someone else's homework, however, will not count.

Dates of exams: No make-up exams!

Midterms: (preliminary) 10/25, 11/22

How to find out the final exam date:

1. Get into StudentLink (you can find it on the upper right corner of )

2. In the upper right corner at StudentLink, under `Where Do You Want To Go', you can find `Final Exams'. Go for it, and look up the date of your final under Fall 2002 Final Exam Schedule

Course material: We will use the book `Complex variables and applications', sixth edition, by Brown and Churchill. We will roughly cover chapters 1-7, perhaps a bit more or less.

Homework assignments Unless further notice, homework is to be turned in on or before the date posted (either in section or the day after section in class). This changes what was posted earlier here.

Disclaimer: I will try to get the homework assignment on the net in time. Due to time and other limitations, this may not always be possible. The fact that there is no assignment posted for a particular date does therefore NOT necessarily mean that no homework is due.

Final: The final takes place on Thursday, 12/12, 3-6pm in our class room. The usual rules apply: one hand-written cheat sheet (you can write on both sides), no calculators, books or other notes. The material will be taken from the sections from which homework was assigned, with emphasis on the latter part of the course (in particular computing residues and integrals via residues, computing and working with power series and Laurent series, doing contour integrals etc). Below you find the final for a course I gave four years ago.
