Complex numbers: algebra, representation, polar forms, complex exponential, powers and roots, topological representation, Riemann sphere and stereographic representation. Analytic functions: limits and continuity, analyticity, CR equations, harmonic functions, elementary functions: polynomials, rational functions, exponential, hyperbolic functions, complex integration: contour integrals, Cauchy’s integral theorem, bounds for analytic functions, Series representation for analytic functions: Taylor series, power series, Laurent series, singularities, Residue theory: improper integrals, Conformal mapping, Entire and meromorphic functions, applications of harmonic functions, Fourier series and Laplace transform. Applications in Circuit Simulators, Electromagnetism (time-harmonic fields), Electrostatics (solutions to Laplace's equation), and in various other fields of engineering and, natural and applied sciences.
