Access Index ### Course description and aims

A complex number is a combination of real and imaginary numbers, and is an indispensable mathematical tool to understand the various phenomena in mechanical engineering. In this lecture, you study the fundamental and application of the complex function theory, which is required by a mechanical engineer. In addition to understanding the basics of the differentiation of complex functions, you acquire mathematical skills to solve various engineering problems by studying the second-order partial differential equations and the application to the integral calculation of real functions.

The lecture is focused on the following points.
1. By learning the calculus of the complex function in comparison with that of the real function, you understand the characteristics of the complex function and acquire the calculating ability.

2. You learn that many of the important techniques in the integral evaluation of complex functions are developed from Cauchy's integral theorem and Cauchy's integral formula by learning the Cauchy-Riemann equation, Laplace equation, Cauchy's integral theorem.

3. Learn about the advanced integral methods using Taylor and Laurent series expansion and the use of residue theory.

### Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Have an understanding of overview of complex number and complex function, and gain an ability to solve basic problem.
2) Understand the advantage of complex function, and gain an ability to solve real problems in various engineering.
