Lectures are a sequel to ''Advanced topics of Analysis A'' in the previous quarter.
A Riemann surface is a two-real-dimensional manifold with holomorphic coordinate transformations.
We will study the most important theorems concerning closed Riemann surfaces,
in this course, Abel’s theorem and the Jacobi inversion theorem.
Using these and the Riemann-Roch theorem a topic in the previous quarter, we will study the Jacobian varieties and holomorphic maps of closed Riemann surfaces.
At the end of this course, students are expected to understand the main classical results of the theory of closed Riemann surfaces, like the Riemann-Roch Theorem, Abel's Theorem and the Jacobi inversion.

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
