Mathematical Analysis

This is the study programme for 2020/2021.

The course covers fundamentals of mathematical analysis with focus on complex analysis.

Learning outcome

Upon completing this course students should be able to:
Clearly understand what is meant by a mathematical proof, and how to communicate mathematical arguments clearly in the form of a mathematical proof. Understand basic topological notions (closed, open, connected and compact sets, convergence, continuity). Get operational knowledge of analytic and harmonic functions, including maximum principle, argument principle and integral representations. Determine Taylor and Laurent series of elementary analytic functions, find their zero points and singularities, and get knowledge of residue theory and its applications.


Elements of mathematical logic, basic topological notions, analytic and harmonic functions of a complex variable, Cauchy-Riemann conditions, Cauchy's integral theorem and integral formulas, Taylor and Laurent series representations, classification of isolated singularities and residue theory.
