Course description and aims

In this course, students will practice solving problems related to complex function theory and Fourier series that are widely applicable in science and engineering.

The aim of this course is to aid students’ understanding of Applied Mathematics for Physicists and Scientists I by solving exercise problems.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Understand the basic concepts and properties of complex functions, such as holomorphicity.
2) Do differentiation and integration of complex functions, as well as integration
of real function by the residue theorem.
3) Solve the boundary value problem of 2-D Laplace’s equation by using conformal mapping technique.

Keywords

complex function, holomorphy, Cauchy’s internal theorem, residue theorem, conformal map, analytic continuation, Fourier series

Competencies that will be developed

 ✔ Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills ✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

This course follows the progress of Applied Mathematics for Physicists and Scientists I. Exercise problems will be assigned every class meeting and will be due the next class. Problems are to be solved at the blackboard in the classroom, or submitted as written assignments.

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

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.
