Analysis of one complex variable: holomorphic functions, line integrals, Cauchy's integral theorem, singularities, residues, Laurent series, partial fraction decomposition, analytic continuation, Möbius transformations, Riemann mapping theorem, ...

Prerequisites are the contents of the courses Analysis I and II (single- and multivariable calculus) and Linear Algebra. It might be especially helpful to review power series of one variable.

This is an Additional Basic Course of the Berlin Mathematical School held in English or German (depending on the audience).


Note that Monday, May 01, Thursday, May 25 and Monday, June 05 are public holidays, so there will be neither lectures nor tutorials on these days.
