Description for 2020/21

This module extends Level 5 Complex Variable considering further applications of contour integration and the Residue Theorem. The module then provides an introduction to conformal mappings, together with some of their applications, in particular, their application in determining harmonic functions in two-dimensional regions. The module also covers certain analytical aspects of complex functions.

The aim of this module is, firstly, to study further applications of contour integration and the Residue Theorem and, secondly, to provide an introduction to conformal mappings and their applications.

Description of Module Assessment

1: Portfolio weighted 20%
Portfolio of work created over the semester
A portfolio of work created over the semester through 8 short exercises (equally weighted). The exercises, ¿when combined, form a portfolio of work that develops students' ability to use module concepts, theory and solve mathematical problems. Over the semester, students can expect to spend a total of 30 hours creating their portfolio.

2: Open Book Examination weighted 80%
Online examination
Online 2-hour end of module examination.
