**Sakai:** The course will use
Sakai for all material during the semester. All enrolled students
should have automatic access to the site after logging in to Sakai. Current information about syllabus and homework
will be found there.

Do not forget to "*reload*" the assignments pages - if
you visited them before, your browser may be showing you
only the old cached page.

**Problem Sessions:**
This year we are arranging joint problem sessions for this course and 501, scheduled for
W2, 10:20 -- 11:40AM, in Hill 525. The sessions will be led by graduate student
Matthew Welsh.
He would lead discussions on some assigned problems, and collect some (typically
4 per week) for grading.

**Text and Additional Books on Reserve:**
Our text for the course will be
**Complex Analysis ** In the Spirit of Lipman Bers, by Rodrìguez, Kra, and Gilman,
Springer, 2013. (ISBN 978-1-4419-7322-1). Rutgers students can get e-book free from Rutgers Library
link---
need to access the link from campus or login via Rutgers account. Rutgers students can also
get a papercopy for $24.95 (shipping included) through
Springer's MyCopy agreement with Rutgers from the same site.

It is important, and beneficial, for students to be familiar with other presentations of this classical subject. There are many texts on this classical subject. I will just list a few that are easily accessible, and will put a copy on reserve in the math library:

**Complex Analysis [electronic resource]**, 2nd edition, by Rolf Busam and Eberhard Freitag. Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg, 2009. Free full text available on-line from Springer---need to access the link from campus or login via Rutgers account.-
**Twenty-One Lectures on Complex Analysis: A First Course,**, by Alexander Isaev, Springer 2017. (ISBN 978-3-319-68170-2), e-Book free from the same Rutgers Library link. **Complex Analysis**, by Serge Lang, Springer, 4th edition, 1999. ISBN-10: 144193135X.-
**Complex analysis : an introduction to the theory of analytic functions of one complex variable**, by Lars V. Ahlfors. McGraw-Hill, c1979. -
**Complex Analysis**, Princeton Lectures in Analysis II, by Elias M. Stein and Rami Shakarchi, Princeton University Press (April 7, 2003). ISBN-10: 0691113858.

**Function theory of one complex variable**, 3rd edition, by Robert E. Greene and Steven G. Krantz. American Mathematical Society, c2006.-
**Geometric function theory : explorations in complex analysis**, by Steven G. Krantz. Birkhäuser, c2006; also available on-line from here.

**Homework Assignments and Grading Policy:**
The grade for the course will be based on a combination of graded homework problems, a
midterm, and a final exam.
Here is the break up:

- Graded homework: 40%.
- Midterm: 25% (tentatively scheduled on Oct. 19).
- Final Exam: 35%.

Students are advised to review the Rutgers academic integrity policies posted at here.

The midterm and the final exam have the format of the regularly assigned problems (perhaps slightly expanded and more comprehensive), and serve to provide some kind of closure on certain parts of our course development.
