This year the Analysis I-II sequence is being
redesigned to cover Complex Analysis, Real Analysis (Measure Theory),
and Functional Analysis. The first semester
introduction, at the graduate level, to functions of one complex
variable and the first half of real analysis.
For the first ten weeks, we cover the basic Cauchy
theory, we will focus on more analytic features of the subject,
highlighting its connection to PDE and Fourier analysis. As references
for complex analysis we use E. Stein and R.
Lars Ahlfors, Complex
Zeev Nehari, Conformal
Mapping. More advanced material on the d-bar equation can
be found in T. Napier and M. Ramachandran, An Introduction to Riemann
weeks 11-14 we begin our discussion of Real Analysis, which will be
followed by 4 more weeks in the second semester. In the first
semester we will cover Measure Theory and Lebesgue Integration in
Euclidean space. References for Real Analysis are Real Analysis by E.
Stein and R. Shakarchi, Real
Analysis by Gerald Folland, and Real Analysis by H.

assigned every week on Tuesday, due the following week on Tuesday. I
very much prefer that students do the
alone. We may
have midterm and final exams.

These problems in advanced
caclulus do not have to be handed in, but should be done this week, so
you are ready for our discussion of contour integration.
