General Competencies

Learning advanced complex calculus and it’s use in various applications: conformal mappings, integral transforms, orthogonal polynomials and special functions.

Learning Outcomes

  1. perform basic operations with complex numbers in various representations
  2. understand the concept of elemenary function and their interconnection
  3. apply the technique of conformal mappings in analyze of simple models
  4. use the technique of power series expansion in the calculus with elementary functions
  5. apply the technique of residuum, especially in the inverse integral transformation
  6. understand the concept of orthogonal systems and expansion into series of orthogonal polynomials
  7. use the properties of gamma function in various situations

Forms of Teaching


Lectures are organized through two cycles. The first cycle consists of 7 weeks of classes and mid-term exam, a second cycle of 6 weeks of classes and final exam. Classes are conducted through a total of 15 weeks with a weekly load of 3 hours.


Mid-term exam in the 8th week of classes and final exam in the 15th week of classes.


Consultations are held one hour weekly according to arrangement with students.

Grading Method

Continuous Assessment Exam
Type Threshold Percent of Grade Comment: Percent of Grade
Quizzes 0 % 20 % 0 % 20 %
Mid Term Exam: Written 0 % 40 % 0 %
Final Exam: Written 0 % 40 %
Exam: Written 0 % 80 %

If student hasn't attended quizzes or wants to improve obtained results, he can take a written exam for 100% of grade.
