Learning Objectives

The aim of the course of Analisi Matematica III is the study of the theory of functions of a complex variable and the Integral Transforms. The student will also develop the ability to apply the concepts learned to the resolution of problems and non-trivial exercises.

In particular, the learning objectives of the course, according to the Dublin descriptors, are:

  1. Knowledge and understanding: The student will learn some concepts of Complex
    Analysis and will develop both computing ability and the capacity of manipulating some common
    mathematical structures, as functions of a complex variable and the Integral Transforms.
  2. Applying knowledge and understanding: The student will be able to apply the acquired
    knowledge in the basic processes of mathematical modeling of classical problems arising from
  3. Making judgements: The student will be stimulated to autonomously deepen his/her knowledge
    and to carry out exercises on the topics covered by the course. Constructive discussion between
    students and constant discussion with the teacher will be strongly recommended so that the
    student will be able to critically monitor his/her own learning process.
  4. Communication skills: The frequency of the lessons and the reading of the recommended books
    will help the student to be familiar with the rigor of the mathematical language. Through constant
    interaction with the teacher, the student will learn to communicate the acquired knowledge with
    rigor and clarity, both in oral and written form. At the end of the course the student will have
    learned that mathematical language is useful for communicating clearly in the scientific field.
  5. Learning skills: The student will be guided in the process of perfecting his/her study method. In
    particular, through suitable guided exercises, he/she will be able to independently tackle new
    topics, recognizing the necessary prerequisites to understand them.

Course Structure

The course consists of blackboard lessons on the theoretical parts and subsequent problem sessions. Occasionaly, electronic devices might be used.

Should teaching be carried out in mixed mode or remotely, it may be necessary to introduce changes with respect to previous statements, in line with the program planned and outlined in the Syllabus.
