Math 136: Complex Variables and Integral Transforms
Read Sections 2.4, 2.5, 3.1, and 3.2 of Saff and Snider,
and the summary at the end of Chapter 2.
Section 2.7 has a brief introduction to the fascinating Julia sets and
Mandelbrot set of complex dynamics, as studied in Math 189: Complex Dynamics.
Do these problems from Saff and Snider:
- Sec. 2.4, The Cauchy-Riemann Equations: 2, 3, 15.
(Think about 7-14.)
- Sec. 2.5, Harmonic Functions: 1a, 2, 3d, 6, 11.
(Think about 8.)
- Sec. 3.1, Polynomials and Rational Functions: 11d.
(Think about 10.)
- Sec. 3.2, The Exponential, Trigonometric, and Hyperbolic
5c, f, 11, 14c, 17a, 20.
(Think about 21.)
Hint for 20: You can use the result of Q19 without proof.
- Bonus problems: Sec. 2.4: 6, and Sec. 2.5: 10.
The bonus problems show that when the real and imaginary parts
u and v of a function f are expressed in terms of
polar coordinates r and t = theta, the Cauchy-Riemann
du/dr = (1/r) dv/dt, and dv/dr = -(1/r) du/dt,
and Laplace's equation becomes
d2u/dr2 + (1/r) du/dr
+ (1/r2) d2u/dt2 = 0.
