Learn the basic results and techniques of the theory of ordinary differential equations and dynamical systems. Acquire skill in manipulation and transforms of complex numbers and understand the first but deep results of complex function theory.

Lectures and exercise sessions.

Written and oral test.

Differential and integral calculus for scalar and vector functions, matrices and linear transformations, sequences and series, power series, complex numbers, polar coordinates.

Models and examples of ODE's. General results concerning existence, uniqueness, comparison and stability for Cauchy problems. Elementary techniques for solving simple differential equations.

Linear systems of ODE's: general results and structure, exponential matrix. The method of Laplace transform.

Asymptotic behaviour of dynamical systems, stability (linearisation and Lyapunov method).

Example of complex functions. Differentiability.

Power series and contour integrals. Olomorphic functions. Cauchy theorem. Singularities, Laurent expansion, and residues. Cauchy theorem. Application to the evaluation of integrals. Analytic extension. Argument principle. Open mapping theorem. Further properties.
