First homework assignment.
Due: Wednesday, September 24.
(The assignment was last modified: 9:28 am, July 18, 2017).

Update Wednesday, September 27:
 Read: We're more or less in the very beginning of Chapter 1 of Rudin.
 Homework: Now you're ready for problems 4, 5 and 6.
 Optional: Here's a
little worksheet on Borel sets. Let
me know if you want to talk about it.

Assignment Two: Friday, September 26
 Read: We've finished through page 20 in the text.
 Assignment One: Assignment One is due today.
 Assigment One: suggested solutions. Comments and corrections welcome. (Typo fixed
7:00 pm, December 31, 1969.)
 Borel Sets: suggested solutions. Comments and corrections strongly encouraged.
 Assignment two: Here is the first draft of the second assignment. (This version dated 9:28 am, July 18, 2017).
 Today's assigment:Start with problems 1 and 2.

Monday, September 29:
 $\LaTeX$:
 Here is the source for the first homework assignment with solutions.
 You'll need my class file to
$\LaTeX$ it. This is also the class file I use for undergraduate exams.
 Here is the source for the second homework
assignment with the answers removed.
 Homework: No new assignment

Wednesday, October 1st:
 Second Homework: You can now work on problems 14 and 7ab.
 Scores on First Homework: The first assignment has been
returned to mailboxes (for those with mailboxes in Kemeny). The
rest will be returned in class. The distribution of scores, out of
45, was: 39, 39, 36, 34, 33, 32, 32, 15. Please come see me if you
have questions (after comparing with the suggested solutions).
 xhour: We are meeting in our xhour this week
and next.

Second Homework Due Wednesday:
 Second Homework: The second assignment is due Wednesday
(October 8th).

Class the Week of October 13  17:
 Second Homework: Here are
some solutions to the second
assignment.
 Class Schedule: We meet tomorrow (the 9th) in our xhour
as well as "as usual" Friday. I am away next week (October 11 
October 20). Carolyn Gordon will cover our lecture on the 13th and
15th. NO CLASS Friday the 17th or Monday the 20th.
 Third Assignment: Here is the third
assignment. You should be able to start on all the problems
after Friday's lecture (or whenever Carolyn or I get around to
defining a premeasure on an algebra of sets). I will be due as
soon as I can get the second assignment graded.

Second Homework Returned:
 Second Homework: I've returned the second assignment to your mail boxes (or will return them in class Monday if you don't have a mailbox). Frankly, the work was generally sloppy. Please work on your exposition. It is what we do, so you need to take pride in producing elegant  as well as correct  solutions.
 Solutions: I made some "improvements" to the solutions I handed out earlier. Here are
some updated solutions to the second
assignment.
 Scores: Here are the scores on the second assignment
(our of 40): 33, 27, 26, 26, 25, 24, 23, 15. I did not grade one
problem and one problem was worth 10.
 Source: Here is the
$\LaTeX$ source for the third assignment.

I'm Back!
 Third Assignment: There was a bad typo on problem 4c.
The $\bigcup G_k$ should have been $\bigcap G_k$. The file hw3.pdf has been updated.
 Due Date: Please turn in the third assignment on Friday.

Complex Variables: Friday, October 24
 Fourth Assignment: Here is the fourth
assignment. It is largely independent of lecture. If you get
stuck, you are welcome to look for hints/solutions in basic
texts.
 Third Assignment: Here are some
brief solutions for the third
assignment as well as for the optional
problem on Riemann integrals.

Monday, October 27
 Third Assignment returned: The third assignment will be
returned by class time on Monday (the 27th). The scores were 34,
31, 30, 27, 25, 23 and 23. In the process of grading the third assignment, I made a number of "improvements" to the solutions: hw3solns.pdf.

Monday, November 3
 Fifth Assignment : Here is
the fifth and last assignment. (There is
still a takehome final to come.)
 Solutions to fourth assignment: Here are some partial solutions to the fourth assignment.

Last Days
 Fifth Assignment : The fifth last
assignment is due on Monday, November 17th (aka the last day of
class). There were
some annoying typos on problem 3, and I've officially added problem
5 in the text. (There is still a takehome final to come.)
 The Riemann Sphere:
 The final will be available on Monday or Tuesday. It will be
"takehome" and due by Monday the 24th at noon.

Problems with Fifth Assignment
 4 (Rouche's Theorem): I was way too cavilier with my
statement of Rouche's Theorem in homework problem #4 on the fifth
assignment. (Full disclosure: I borrowed it from the last time I
taught Math 43.) First of all, saying "$f$ and $g$ analytic on and
inside $\gamma$" means that $f$ and $g$ are analytic on a simply
connected region $\Omega$ containing $\gamma$. You may simply assume
that we proved in lecture that $$ N_f := \frac1{2\pi i}\int_\gamma
\frac{f'(z)}{f(z)}\,dz \tag{**}$$ is the number of zeros of $f$ inside
of $\gamma$. Or if you want to be fussy  since we only proved (**)
when $\gamma$ was a circle  you can establish (**) using the Residue
Theorem. But even then you will need to assume
$\operatorname{Ind}_\gamma(a)=1$ if $a$ lies inside of $\gamma$.

The Final
 Here are some brief solutions for
the fifth and last homework assignment.
 The final exam is available by clinking
on the link. It is due Monday.
 Please monitor this page for corrections or comments.
 Here are some solutions for the final. Have a great break.
