Complex Variables 2ND Edition

Complex Variables 2ND Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The most important topics in the theory and application of complex variables receive a thorough, coherent treatment in this introductory text. Intended for undergraduates or graduate students in science, mathematics, and engineering, this volume features hundreds of solved examples, exercises, and applications designed to foster a complete understanding of complex variables as well as an appreciation of their mathematical beauty and elegance.

Prerequisites are minimal; a three-semester course in calculus will suffice to prepare students for discussions of these topics: the complex plane, basic properties of analytic functions (including a rewritten and reorganized discussion of Cauchy's Theorem), analytic functions as mappings, analytic and harmonic functions in applications, and transform methods. Useful appendixes include tables of conformal mappings and Laplace transforms, as well as solutions to odd-numbered exercises.

Students and teachers alike will find this volume, with its well-organized text and clear, concise proofs, an outstanding introduction to the intricacies of complex variables.

Unabridged Dover (1999) republication of the work published by Wadsworth & Brooks, Pacific Grove, California, 1990.

Book News Annotation:

Fisher (Northwestern U.) introduces students with a calculus background to the theory and applications of complex variables. Appends exercise solutions and mapping and transform tables. This is a slightly corrected replication of the 1990 edition, differing mainly in its treatment of Cauchy's Theorem. Lacks references.
