1. Complex Numbers (&sect;1.1–1.6)
2. Analytic Functions (&sect;2.1–2.5)
3. Elementary Functions (&sect;3.1–3.3, 3.5)

◦ There will be two midterms (tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, February 8 and Wednesday, March
14) each accounting for about 25% of the final mark.
◦ There will be weekly problem sets accounting for about 10% of the final mark.
◦ The final exam will account for about 40% of the final mark.
◦ Grades will probably be scaled.
POLICIES:
◦ Missing a homework or midterm normally results in a mark of 0. Exceptions may be granted in two
cases: prior consent of the instructor or a medical emergency. In the latter case, the instructor must be
