MATH 503  Complex
Analysis I
Fall 2016
From John von Neumann: "Young man, in
mathematics you don't understand things; you just get
used to them."
Also from Neumann: "If people do not believe that
mathematics is simple, it is only because they do not
realize how complicated life is."
So there, go figure yourself.

Your questions will be related to those answers you gave in the takehome work without convincing me that you totally understood what you wrote. Your grade for that takehome will be determined after this quiz.
