Learning objectives
The course aims at providing some basic concepts and results in study of holomorphic functions in one complex variable.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course, students will acquire the basic knowledge of holomorphic function theory in one complex variable, and they will be able to apply it to exercises that need also computational techniques

Assessment methods and Criteria
The final examination consists of a written exam and of an oral exam.
- During the written part, the student must solve some exercises in the format of open-ended and/or short answer questions, with the aim of assessing the student's ability to solve problems in complex analysis. The duration of the written exam is proportional to the number of exercises assigned, also taking into account the nature and complexity of the exercises themselves (however, the duration will not exceed three hours). In place of a single written exam given during the first examination session, the student may choose instead to take 3 or 4 midterm exams. The outcomes of these tests will be available in the SIFA service through the UNIMIA portal.
- The oral exam can be taken only if the written component has been successfully passed. In the oral part of the exam, the student is required to illustrate results presented during the course and to solve problems in order to evaluate her/his knowledge and comprehension of the arguments covered as well as the capacity to apply them.

The complete final examination is passed if both the written and oral parts are successfully passed. Final marks are given using the numerical range 0-30, and are communicated after the oral examination.
