It is a third-year subject; therefore, the students already have a certain mathematical background necessary to follow it. Although it will be quite self-contained, certain prior knowledge is essential. For example, the theory of series and power series and the improper integrals of Mathematical Analysis and the differential calculus in several variables. Although some aspects of complex numbers have already been seen in other courses, they will be repeated here to facilitate students' learning.

Know and be able to use the fundamental concepts and results of Complex Analysis.

Understand in depth the demonstrations of the most important results and the most common techniques in the area.

Have some initial notions of the basic concepts of the Fourier transform and the Laplace transform.

- Actively demonstrate high concern for quality when defending or presenting the conclusions of one's work.
- Apply critical spirit and thoroughness to validate or reject both one's own arguments and those of others.
- Assimilate the definition of new mathematical objects, relate them with other contents and deduce their properties.
- Calculate and reproduce certain mathematical routines and processes with agility.
- Recognise the presence of Mathematics in other disciplines.
- Students must be capable of applying their knowledge to their work or vocation in a professional way and they should have building arguments and problem resolution skills within their area of study.
- Students must have and understand knowledge of an area of study built on the basis of general secondary education, and while it relies on some advanced textbooks it also includes some aspects coming from the forefront of its field of study.
- Understand and use mathematical language.
- Use computer applications for statistical analysis, numeric and symbolic calculus, graphic display, optimisation or other purposes to experiment with Mathematics and solve problems.

- Actively demonstrate high concern for quality when defending or presenting the conclusions of one's work.
- Apply critical spirit and thoroughness to validate or reject both one's own arguments and those of others.
- Comfortably deal with the calculation of residues and its applications
- Contrast acquired theoretical and practical knowledge.
- Handle with ease homographic transformations and conformal representation.
- Know how to calculate Fourier periodic function coefficients and their possible immediate applications for calculating sums of series.
- Students must be capable of applying their knowledge to their work or vocation in a professional way and they should have building arguments and problem resolution skills within their area of study.
- Students must have and understand knowledge of an area of study built on the basis of general secondary education, and while it relies on some advanced textbooks it also includes some aspects coming from the forefront of its field of study.
- Understand Fourier and Laplace transforms of elemental functions and their application to the resolution of differential equations.

1. Preliminaries. Complex numbers. Power series. Holomorphic functions. Cauchy-Riemann equations.

2. Cauchy's Local Theory. Complex line integrals. Cauchy-Goursat theorem and the local Cauchy theorem. Holomorphy and analyticity. Zeros of holomorphic functions. The index of a closed curve. Cauchy's integral formula. Analytical extension. Cauchy inequalities, Liouville's theorem and Fundamental theorem of algebra. The principle of the maximum module. Schwarz's motto.

3. Singularities. Laurent series. Classification of isolated singularities. Waste theorem and applications. The principle of argument and Rouché's theorem.

4. Harmonic functions. Basic properties of harmonic functions. Harmonic functions on a disc. Dirichlet problem.

5. Integral transforms. Fourier transform. Laplace transform. Basic properties. Applications to solve equations.

The subject has two hours of theory per week. They will be taught in the traditional way with chalk and blackboard. In the theory where the concepts will be broken down and the important results (theorems) that underpin the theory we are introducing will be stated.

We will demonstrate theorems and solving methods through examples and exercises.

The student will receive lists of exercises and problems that we will work on in the weekly problem class. Previously, during your off-site activity, you will have read and thought about the proposed exercises and problems. In this way, their participation in the classroom can be guaranteed and the assimilation of procedural content will be facilitated.

There will be three seminar sessions, each lasting two hours. The students will have material previously placed on the Virtual Campus that they must have studied. In the first two sessions there will be a (short) first part where the teacher will add some details about the content of the practice. Then the students will get to work on a list of activities. Practices can be done in pairs, which seems to help them a lot. The third session of the seminars will be assessable. The planned topics are a more in-depth study of Möbius transformations and more applications of the residue theorem in the calculation of definite integrals. The evaluation will deal with these topics.

The Virtual Campus will be the means of communication between teachers and students. It will be important to consult it every day.

The students will have a tutoring and counseling service both online and in the office. It is recommended to use this aid for monitoring the course.

Note: 15 minutes of a class will be reserved within the calendar established by center/degree for completion by students in the evaluation surveys of the teaching staff's performance and evaluation of the subject/module .

**Annotation**: Within the schedule set by the centre or degree programme, 15 minutes of one class will be reserved for students to evaluate their lecturers and their courses or modules through questionnaires.

Learning mathematics is a complex process. A maturation is needed that is achieved throughout the course. Many times, some result of the beginning of the theory comes to be completely understood very advanced in the course. This shows the difficulty of assessments.

At the university there is the model of continuous assessment which is not viable as it is done in secondary education since there are neither the logistics nor the possibilities to carry it out. Then a model is made, which has a certain similarity to a continuous assessment, and which obliges the students to do the study, we can say every day.

There will be two partial written exams during the semester, which will mainly consist of solving problems, but will also contain a theoretical part. They will be rated P1 and P2 respectively. The first will have a weighting of 35% and the second 45%.

The seminar test will assign an S grade of up to 20%.

The grade for continuous assessment will be obtained with the formula

QC= 0.35*P1+0.45*P2+0.2*S.

If QC is greater than or equal to 5 the course will be passed. Otherwise, the student will be able to present himself for a make-up, and will obtain an R and a grade

QC’= 0.8* R+0.2*S.

In order to be able to present yourself for recovery, it is required that the maximum of P1 and P2 is greater than or equal to 1. People who want to improve their grades can also choose to present themselves. The grade will always be

QF=maximum{QC, QC’}.

The possible honors registrations will be awarded respecting the regulations in force and once the entire evaluation has been completed, possible recovery included.

If a student has only taken an assessment test, they will be given "Not assessable" as the final grade.

AVALUACiÓ ÚNICA:

People who, for very justified reasons, cannot take the continuous assessment, can take the single assessment. This option must be requested with the requirements set by the degree. Accepted people will be able to take the exam together with the make-up exam in which two questions about the seminars will be added, they will get a grade S. Their grade will be

QC’=0.8*R+0.2*S

If QC' exceeds 3.5 and does not reach 5, the student will have a recovery option under the same conditions. If QC' does not exceed 3.5, this will be the grade that will be awarded.

There are no computer practice classes in the subject, so no study of computer programs will be done. Despite this, it will be recommended to use mathematical manipulation programs such as Maxima or Wolfram Alpha, which can be very useful.
