Math 427: Complex Analysis

Main Page Homework


The homework assignments for this course will be available a week before their due date on the website for this course. Homework is due by the beginning of class on Thursdays (note: there is no homework the first week or the week of the midterm).

There will be eleven assignments in all, and each assignment will have five or six exercises. Your solutions should be polished and easy to follow, with proofs written in paragraph form using complete sentences. Your goal is to achieve the same sort of clarity in your homework as Stein and Shakarcki demonstrate in their textbook. Homework assignments done in LaTeX are encouraged, but not required.

Each exercise will be graded on the following 0 to 4 scale:
4 = Essentially correct and well written
3 = Some significant errors, or essentially correct but badly written
2 = Major deficiencies in write-up
1 = Handed in with little work shown
0 = No work done on exercise
The sum of your scores on the exercises will be your grade for the homework assignment. You may resubmit any homework assignment two Thursday classes after its original due date for full credit (the last two homework assignments may be resubmitted with your final). Please attach your original homework to your resubmitted assignment when you hand it in.

The sum of your top ten homework grades (after resubmission) will be your homework score for the course (i.e., your lowest homework grade will be dropped).
