110.407 Honors Complex Analysis  -- Fall 2018

Instructor:

Bernard Shiffman, Krieger 410

Office hours: Wednesday 2-4

TA:

Yujie Luo

Math Help Room Hours: Friday 3-5

Lecture:

TuTh 12-1:15, Maryland 202

Since this is a 4-credit course with no section meeting, you will need to spend extra time on the reading and assignments.

Text:

Gamelin, Complex Analysis, Springer, 2001. An electronic version of the book is available to download free at this link using a computer on the Hopkins network. But I strongly recommend buying the printed version, which is available in paperback from Amazon and other sellers.

Prerequisite:

110.405 or 110.415

Grading:

weekly homework assignments (50%), midterm exams (25% each)

Homework:

Since the purpose of the homework is to gain better understanding of the material, you may discuss the homework with other students in the course, but you must write up the homework solutions on your own. Copying homework from another student or from the internet or any other source is a violation of academic integrity. Homework will be assigned each week and will be due the following Tuesday in class. No late homework will be accepted for any reason, including excused absence. Missing or late homework will be given a grade of 0, even if you have a good excuse. To allow for one absence or other circumstances, the lowest homework grade will be dropped.

Exam dates:

In place of a final, there will be two midterms on Tuesday, Oct. 16, and Thursday, Dec. 6.

Course policy:

You are expected to attend and actively participate in class. Check your email regularly; announcements related to the course will be sent to your JHU email address. Finally, please silence cell phones and refrain from text messaging or using electronic devices during class.

How to get the most out of the class:

Complete the reading before the lecture. Questions are encouraged during class; if there is something you don't understand or are unsure of, please speak up! I also encourage you to come to office hours for help anytime you have questions. Begin the homework early, so you can get help with any problems you're having trouble with.
