**Course description:**
This is the third in a three-sequence graduate course on complex analysis, picking up where Math 220B left off. Topics to be presented include:
Mittag-Leffler's theorem, Schwarz reflection principle, analytic continuation, sheaves of analytic functions, analytic manifolds (Riemann surfaces), harmonic/subharmonic/superharmonic functions, order of entire functions, the big Picard theorem. If time permits, we may say more about Riemann surfaces in the direction of the Riemann-Roch theorem.
