Course content

The course covers classical topics devoted to analytic functions, in addition to the understanding on how 2D elasticity theory  can be treated by using complex Analysis. In addition one learns how to solve 2D thermal and fluid flow problems by using analytic functions.

Objectives of the course

After completing the course, the student should have obtained the following learning outcome:

the students will have some knowledge within the academic field of Analytical computations, and some of their applications in physics and engineering.

The students will be able to formulate and analyze the problems in terms of Complex function and integrals.

Language of instruction


Teaching methods

All lectures are pre-recorded on video, and students will be able to follow them via their computer (or laptop /smartphone if you use my Youtube channel).

It is recommended that the students start watching video lectures at 8.15. Those who like, may also meet in the classroom at. 09.15.  (to be announced in Canvas)

Here, the teacher will answer questions from the students concerning the topics considered the previous day. Afterwards, the students continue watching video lectures, assisted by the teacher. Normally, students work with this until noon. After lunch, i.e. at. 1 PM, they start with today's exercise and work with this until 4 PM, assisted by the teacher.

All information concerning the course, videos, lecture notes, exercises with solutions, project etc. can be found in Canvas when the course starts.


The course is evaluated by written examination (4 hours). One of the tasks will be known in advance through Canvas. On the exam you are not allowed to use any kind of utilities in addition to ordinary printing equipment's (e.g. lap top, mobile device, or calculator of any kind are prohibited).

Grading follows A-F grading scale, F is Fail.

There will be no re-sit/ continuation exam for this course.

Date for examination

Analytic comutations - written exam 20.12.2019

The date for the exam can be changed. The final date will be announced in the StudentWeb early in May and early in November.
