Introduction to Complex Analysis

Wesleyan University via Coursera

students interested
This course provides an introduction to complex analysis which is the theory of complex functions of a complex variable. We will start by introducing the complex plane, along with the algebra and geometry of complex numbers, and then we will make our way via differentiation, integration, complex dynamics, power series representation and Laurent series into territories at the edge of what is known today. Each module consists of five video lectures with embedded quizzes, followed by an electronically graded homework assignment. Additionally, modules 1, 3, and 5 also contain a peer assessment.

The homework assignments will require time to think through and practice the concepts discussed in the lectures. In fact, a significant amount of your learning will happen while completing the homework assignments. These assignments are not meant to be completed quickly; rather you'll need paper and pen with you to work through the questions. In total, we expect that the course will take 6-12 hours of work per module, depending on your background.

Brilliant first course in Complex Analysis. I have had issues with Complex analysis ever since I encountered it in a course 4 years ago and was unable to overcome it despite numerous attempts to do so. This course did the trick. The lectures have been constructed to appeal to anyone interested. The mathematics rigor has not been neglected though and the emphasis on examples rather than the proofs is very welcome. The only downside is insufficient assignment problems, but ALL IN ALL, A GREAT COURSE
