Spring 2021 - APMA 990 G100
Selected Topics in Applied Mathematics (4)
Class Number: 8059
Delivery Method: In Person
Topics vary depending on faculty availability and student interest. Recent offerings include: geophysical fluid dynamics, adaptive numerical methods for differential equations, learning theory, and stability, pattern formation and chaos.
This course will be delivered online. You are expected to have access to a reliable internet connection. You will need a computer from which you can download course materials and activities and watch live and/or recorded lectures and participate in live tutorials or workshops.
You will need a camera to take photographs of your work. A phone is acceptable.
Selected Topics in Applied Mathematics: Complex Analysis: Theorems & Applications
Complex analysis is a subject whose importance has a broad reach within mathematics. This course will start with a short, but more rigorous (than is normally done at the undergraduate level) revisiting of the foundations of the study of analytic functions. The latter part of this course will aim to demonstrate the reach of complex analysis over a wide scope of theoretical, calculational, geometrical and computational questions in mathematics. Among the special topics could be the Riemann mapping theorem, conformal mapping and Fourier integral theory.
Prerequisite experience: Undergraduate introduction to complex variables. Other useful backgrounds may include real analysis, differential equations (ODEs & PDEs) and Fourier analysis. (SFU undergraduates with upper division analysis credits are encouraged to consider joining.)

Graduate Studies Notes:
Important dates and deadlines for graduate students are found here: http://www.sfu.ca/dean-gradstudies/current/important_dates/guidelines.html. The deadline to drop a course with a 100% refund is the end of week 2. The deadline to drop with no notation on your transcript is the end of week 3.
ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS
SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
TEACHING AT SFU IN SPRING 2021
Teaching at SFU in spring 2021 will be conducted primarily through remote methods. There will be in-person course components in a few exceptional cases where this is fundamental to the educational goals of the course. Such course components will be clearly identified at registration, as will course components that will be “live” (synchronous) vs. at your own pace (asynchronous). Enrollment acknowledges that remote study may entail different modes of learning, interaction with your instructor, and ways of getting feedback on your work than may be the case for in-person classes. To ensure you can access all course materials, we recommend you have access to a computer with a microphone and camera, and the internet. In some cases your instructor may use Zoom or other means requiring a camera and microphone to invigilate exams. If proctoring software will be used, this will be confirmed in the first week of class.Students with hidden or visible disabilities who believe they may need class or exam accommodations, including in the current context of remote learning, are encouraged to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning (email@example.com or 778-782-3112).
