Real and Complex Calculus

This is the study programme for 2019/2020. It is subject to change.

Introduction to function theory in one complex and several real variables, including convergence/divergence of series, both real and complex.

Learning outcome

Understand the concept of limit, and be able to define continuity and differentiability of functions of several real variables and of one complex variable. Understand the concepts of convergence and divergence of series and power series of functions of one real and one complex variable, and be able to use different convergence tests, especially for finding the radius of convergence and area of convergence of a power series. Get operational knowledge of the basic concepts of multi-variable analysis. Be able to solve extremal value problems in several variables. Be able to calculate with complex numbers in Cartesian, polar and exponential form, find powers and roots of complex numbers. Be able to define and know basic properties of the complex exponential and logarithmic functions and complex trigonometric functions, and to derivate elementary analytical functions. Understand the concepts of analytic and harmonic functions, and be able to understand and use the necessary conditions for differentiability. Understand and use basic properties of analytic and harmonic functions. Be able to determine Taylor series of elementary analytical functions. Be able to find the Fourier series of a given simple function.
