Thread: How do I use Riemman sums to integrate (4-x^2)^(1/2) from 0 to 2?

The requirements at my school are Calc 3 and a proof writing class. This for the undergraduate level.

3. Alright. I noticed you're from FL as well, where are you going to school?

I go to the University of Tampa.

I don't really know what you're questions asking, but assuming you're asking "when" you take complex analysis the answer varies. Theoretical complex analysis is usually taught at a graduate level, usually on the very vague magnitude that if 504 and 505 are the basic grad analysis courses (not measure theory or functional, just basic mathematical analysis) then 601 and 602 are the graduate complex analysis courses. That said, the kind of complex analysis you're probably mentioning is easily accessible right after multivariate calculus if one just accepts the theorems (maybe PDEs and vector calc would help though).

As off-topic and random as this might be, I always thought you were Australian for some reason, haha!

Haha, not Australian. My mom is American and father 1/2 American and 1/2 British.

I'm assuming one would cover the material you guys presented in a complex analysis class earlier than other classes and I was wondering what the avg. pre-reqs were. So, that's what I was asking.

10. Well, thanks for the direction.

11. From what I can see, the question is "solved". This thread is starting to derail a bit, so I think its time to close the thread.
