Course responsible: Susanne Solem
ECTS credits: 10
Faculty: Faculty of Science and Technology
Teaching language: EN
(NO=norsk, EN=Engelsk)
Teaching exam periods:
This course starts in the Spring parallel. This course has teaching and evaluation in the Spring parallel.
Course frequency: Annually
First time: Study year 2004-2005
Course contents:
The most important information on each topic of the course is given in lectures. After this, the students are given problems to solve on the same topics. The aims of the problem-solving are for students to practice calculation technique, understand methods and ideas, as well as be able to apply the subject to technical-physical problems.
Learning outcome:

The students shall learn elementary theory for analytical functions and transformation methods. They shall be able to apply this theory to problems in geomatics, physics and technology. After completing the course, the students shall master:

  • Complex numbers
  • Complex functions
  • Cauchy"s integral theorem and Cauchy"s integral formula
  • Taylor series and Laurent series
  • Residue calculations
  • Fourier series
  • Fourier transformations.
Learning activities:
The teaching will be given as: lectures, exercises with an assistant teacher present.
Teaching support:
The students can either contact the lecturer in the office, by telephone, or by e-mail.
An overview will be handed out in the lectures.
