Module summaryThis module aims to develop the ideas of continuity, differentiability and integrability and in particular show how they can be extended to complex valued functions. It will develop students' ability to appreciate the importance of proofs, and to understand and write them.
ObjectivesOn completion of this module, students should be able to:
a) use the epsilon-delta formulation to show that a function is continuous;
b) calculate upper and lower Riemann sums;
c) apply convergence tests to series of real and complex numbers and evaluate the radius of convergence of power series;
d) use the Cauchy-Riemann equations to decide where a given function is analytic;
e) compute standard contour integrals using the fundamental theorem of the calculus, Cauchy's theorem or Cauchy's integral formula;
f) classify the singularities of analytic functions and to compute, in the case of a pole, its order and residue;
g) evaluate typical definite integrals by using the calculus of residues.
1. Epsilon-delta definition of continuity for a function of a real variable.
2. Riemann integration for real valued functions. Formal properties of the integral. The Fundamental Theorem of the Calculus.
3. Basic ideas of complex function theory. Limits, continuity, analytic functions, Cauchy-Riemann equations.
4. Contour integrals. Cauchy's theorem, Cauchy's integral formula.
5. Power series. Analytic functions represented as Taylor or Laurent series. Singularities. Orders of poles, Cauchy's residue theorem, evaluation of definite integrals.
