Complex analysis
Note from June 29, 2020
Although we do not yet know how long the social distancing related to the Covid-19 pandemic will last, and regardless of the changes that had to be made in the evaluation of the June 2020 session in relation to what is provided for in this learning unit description, new learnig unit evaluation methods may still be adopted by the teachers; details of these methods have been - or will be - communicated to the students by the teachers, as soon as possible.

1
 Contribution of the course to learning outcomes in the Master in Mathematics programme. By the end of this activity, students will have made progress in:  - Recognise and understand a basic foundation of mathematics. In particular: -- Recognise the fundamental concepts of important current mathematical theories. -- Establish the main connections between these theories. - Show evidence of abstract thinking and of a critical spirit. In particular: -- Identify the unifying features of different situations and experiments in mathematics or in closely related fields (probabilty and statistics, physics). -- Argue within the context of the axiomatic method. -- Construct and draw up a proof independently, with clarity and rigour. Learning outcomes specific to the course. By the end of this activity, students will be able to:  (a)  Understand and apply the major results from complex analysis. (b) Understand the theory of conformal mappings and Möbius transformations. (c)  Construct bijective conformal mappings between simple domains. (d)  Understand and use several asymptotic methods.
