Course Description

This is an advanced undergraduate course dealing with calculus in one complex variable with geometric emphasis. Since the course Analysis I (18.100B) is a prerequisite, topological notions like compactness, connectedness, and related properties of continuous functions are taken for granted.

This course offers biweekly problem sets with solutions, two term tests and a final exam, all with solutions.
