Complex Analysis II (Winter 2014/15)


This is a course of the
Berlin Mathematical School
held in English.
Contents
Further topics in analysis of one complex variable: conformal mappings, in
particular reflection principles and SchwarzChristoffel formula;
introduction to the theory of elliptic functions and some applications;
analytic theory of
differential equations, in particular Fuchsian differential equations
and hypergeometric differential equations.

latest).
