Functions of a Complex Variable (SP22)
Welcome to our Math 43 Canvas Page. Although the pandemic is not over, we getting back to some version of normal. We plan to continue to meet in person this term. As most of you know all too well, things may change during the course of the term and we all have to be flexible.
Our main resource for the course is our web page. We will use this canvas page to post grades and some other information about the course not meant to be shared outside of the participants.
Now a little bit about the course. As a sort of teaser for the course, one of the formulas we'll shortly make sense out of is . It gathers five of the most common constants in mathematics together in one formula. John Kemeny, Dartmouth's 13th president, liked it so much, he had it drawn on the blackboard behind him in his presidential portrait in Baker Library:
After learning enough about complex arithmetic to understand Kemeny's formula, we'll move on to the calculus of complex valued functions of a complex variable. I hope you'll enjoy the subject as much as I do.
The syllabus page shows a table-oriented view of the course schedule, and the basics of course grading. You can add any other comments, notes, or thoughts you have about the course structure, course policies or anything else.
