- Lecture: Tu 1:30PM - 2:15PM; Th 2:30PM - 4:15PM
- Tutorial: Tu 12:30PM - 1:15PM
This course is to introduce the basic properties of complex functions and analytic functions and to illustrate the important use of these theories to other branches of mathematics and sciences. Topics include: complex numbers; limits, continuity and derivatives, Cauchy-Riemann equations, analytic functions; elementary functions; mapping by elementary functions; Contours integrals, Cauchy-Goursat theorem, Cauchy integral formula, Morera’s theorem, maximum moduli of functions, the fundamental theorem of algebra; Taylor series and Laurent’s series; residues and poles, evaluation of infinite real integrals. Our first lecture will be on Sept. 8 and the last lecture will be on Dec. 3. There will be no tutorial on the first week of this term.

Honesty in Academic Work
The Chinese University of Hong Kong places very high importance on honesty in academic work submitted by students, and adopts a policy of zero tolerance on cheating and plagiarism. Any related offence will lead to disciplinary action including termination of studies at the University. Although cases of cheating or plagiarism are rare at the University, everyone should make himself / herself familiar with the content of the following website:http://www.cuhk.edu.hk/policy/academichonesty/
and thereby help avoid any practice that would not be acceptable.
