Complex Analysis is an essential component in the training of mathematicians, physicists and engineers as well as a key component in other branches of pure and applied sciences. In this course unit students are provided a first approach to the subject.

1.Complex Analysis
2.Cauchy Theorem
3. Residues

In the end, students are expected to be able to know and understand the following concepts: complex numbers, holomorphic functions; integration of complex functions; Cauchy theorem; power series representation of holomorphic functions; residues; harmonic functions.

1. Complex numbers
2. Holomorphic functions
3. Integration of complex functions
4. Cauchy's theorem;
5. Power series representations of holomorphic functions
6. Residues
7. Harmonic functions
8. Complementary developments

Continuous assessment is privileged: 2 or 3 digital written documents (e-folios) during the semester (40%) and a presence-based final exam (p-folio) in the end of the semester (60%). In due time, students can alternatively choose to perform one final presence-based exam (100%).

This course unit requires knowledge on Elements of Infinitesimal Analysis II.
