Course description and aims

The goal of this course is to outline the new epoch of classical complex analysis.

At the beginning, we will introduce the hyperbolic geometry in the upper half plane. After discussing the normal family, we will show Riemann's mapping theorem which has many applications in the complex analysis. We will explain Riemann surfaces. The theory of Riemann surfaces provides a new foundation for complex analysis on a higher level. As in elementary complex analysis, the subject matter is analytic functions. But the notion of an analytic function will have now a broader meaning as we show. Finally, an introductory lecture on elliptic functions and elliptic curves will be given.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) understand the hyperbolic geometry.
2) obtain the notion of normal family and its applications.
3) know Riemann's mapping theorem and its applications.
4) understand Riemann surfaces.

Keywords

Normal family, Riemann's mapping theorem, Riemann surface.
