As there are exams next week, there is no time for a review lecture. A set of solutions for problem set 3 will be posted on this page on tuesday. If you need some clarifications or discussions, contact me by email to set up a meeting. All the best for the examination.

VIKTIG: The lecture tomorrow is postponed until friday. This is to give you time to look at the problem sheet 3 and ask for clarifications in class.

NEXT LECTURE will be on friday at the regular time.

In today's lecture, I proved Cauchy Residue theorem and provided several examples illustrating it. I also computed some real integrals by converting them into contour integrals.

In the next lecture, i will cover argument principle and Rouche's theorem.
