Advanced Complex Analysis Part 2. Instructor: Dr. T.E. Venkata Balaji, Department of Mathematics, IIT Madras.
43
This is the second part of a series of lectures on advanced topics in Complex Analysis. By advanced, we mean topics that are not (or just barely) touched upon in a first course on Complex Analysis. The theme of the course is to study compactness and convergence in families of analytic (or holomorphic) functions and in families of meromorphic functions. The compactness we are interested herein is the socalled sequential compactness, and more specifically it is normal convergence  namely convergence on compact subsets. The final objective is to prove the Great or Big Picard Theorem and deduce the Little or Small Picard Theorem. (from nptel.ac.in)
