Synopses & Reviews
Beginning with a brief survey of some basic mathematical concepts, this graduate-level text proceeds to discussions of a selection of mapping functions, numerical methods and mathematical models, nonplanar fields and nonuniform media, static fields in electricity and magnetism, and transmission lines and waveguides. Other topics include vibrating membranes and acoustics, transverse vibrations and buckling of plates, stresses and strains in an elastic medium, steady state heat conduction in doubly connected regions, transient heat transfer in isotropic and anisotropic media, and fluid flow. Revision of 1991 ed. 247 figures. 38 tables. Appendices.
Synopsis
A powerful method of analysis with numerous applications, conformal mapping provides solutions to problems in fields as diverse as electromagnetics, heat flow, fluid flow, mechanics, and acoustics. This volume introduces the basic mathematical tools behind conformal mapping, describes advances in technique, and illustrates a broad range of applications. Author Roland Schinzinger has taught courses at all levels in engineering for over 40 years, and this text offers advanced undergraduate and graduate students the benefits of his vast experience. Unabridged republication of the edition published by Elsevier Science Publishers B. V., Amsterdam, 1991.
