Applied Complex Variables (M828)

This course is based on Complex Variables by J. W. Dettman (reprinted by Dover, 1984), and appeals to scientists and engineers as well as to mathematicians; complex variable theory pervades a wide variety of important subjects and this course teaches topics that are both useful in the theoretical sciences and of interest in their own right.

Entry requirements

Applicants must be registered for the MSc in mathematics or for another qualification towards which the course can count; plus have at least 2nd Class Honours in a mathematics degree, or in another degree with a high mathematical content, such as engineering or theoretical physics; in exceptional circumstances applicants without that qualification are considered, although non-graduates are not normally be admitted to the MSc programme; an adequate preparation would be the undergraduate-level courses in pure mathematics (M208) (or the discontinued course M203) and complex analysis (M337) (or the discontinued courses M231 and M332).
