Elements of mathematical logic, basic topological notions, analytic and harmonic functions of a complex variable, Cauchy-Riemann conditions, Cauchy's integral theorem and integral formulas, Taylor and Laurent series representations, classification of isolated singularities and residue theory.
Learning outcome
Upon completing this course students should be able to:
  • Clearly understand what is meant by a mathematical proof, and how to communicate mathematical arguments clearly in the form of a mathematical proof.
  • Understand basic topological notions (closed, open, connected and compact sets, convergence, continuity).
  • Get operational knowledge of analytic and harmonic functions, including maximum principle and integral representations.
  • Determine Taylor and Laurent series of elementary analytic functions, find their zero points and singularities, and get knowledge of residue theory and its applications.
