Math 650
Several Complex Variables

Harold P. Boas

Fall 2011

Lecture notes (as of November 30)
Course description
This course is an introduction to the theory of functions of several complex variables. The emphasis is on the part of the theory that intersects with analysis and with partial differential equations.
Here are some of the topics that will be discussed (although not in linear order).
You should have some acquaintance at the first-year graduate level with both real analysis and (one-variable) complex analysis. The official prerequisites for this course are Math 608 and Math 618.
The course meets 11:10–12:25 on Tuesday and Thursday in room 624 of the Blocker building.
