from the Wisfaq site,
my favourite formula,
Here is the exam of 30-10-2014
The course uses
Applied Complex Variables for Scientists and Engineers by
Yue Kuen Kwok.
The numbering of the problems on the slides is as in the second edition,
for those who have the first edition: the problem pages from the second edition
can be found here.
Here are the exams referred to during the lectures:
- First exam (2013-10-31)
- Resit (2014-01-22)
Many more recorded lecture can be found
