Learning outcome
Knowledge: After completing the course the student is expected to have a thorough knowledge of definitions, theorems and examples related to the topics mentioned in the description of the course content and to have a deeper knowledge of complex analysis, both from an analytic and a geometric/topological point of view.

Skills: At the end of the course the student is expected to have the ability to use the acquired knowledge to follow arguments and proofs of advanced level as well as to solve relevant problems using complex methods.

Competences: At the end of the course the student is expected to be able to:
1. reproduce key results presented in the course together with detailed proofs thereof,
2. construct proofs of results in complex analysis at the level of this course,
3. use the course content to study relevant examples and to solve concrete problems.
