Reading Assignments
The reading assignments are from Fundamentals of Complex Analysis for Mathematics, Science and Engineering, 3rd edition, by E. B. Saff and A. D. Snider.
Note to students (February 11, 2003): After our midterm we will spend roughly 4 lectures on Chapter 3, and then begin Chapter 4. Note that we will do so prior to the spring vacation. It is important that you begin to read and work on Chapter 4 the week before spring break.




Chapter 1, Sections 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 


Chapter 1, Sections 1.4, 1.5, 1.6 


Chapter 1, Section 1.7. Chapter 2, Sections 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 


Chapter 2, Sections 2.4, 2.5, 2.6. Optional: Section 2.7. 


No new readingmidterm preparation. 


Chapter 3, Sections 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5. 


(Optional: Chapter 3, Section 3.6recommended for Physics majors and minors.) Chapter 4, Section 4.1. NOTE: At this point in the class the material becomes more sophisticated, and it would be greatly to your advantage to read ahead and to finish the reading in advance of the lectures on this material. 


Chapter 4, Section 4.2, 4.3. This is very subtle material and it would be wise to read it over the vacation week.

Note: The remaining sections of chapter 5 are also quite important, and it is recommended that math majors considering continuing for a masters or Ph.D. read them. 


Section 6.1.
