Extends the concepts developed in introductory complex analysis to applications of complex analysis. Introductory Group Theory is also developed to ring theory and vector spaces. Topics from complex analysis include applications of residues, mappings by elementary functions and conformal mappings and their applications. Topics from Group Theory include ring theory, Euclidean domains and polynomial rings as well as modules and vector spaces.

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
