Hundreds of solved examples, exercises, and applications help students gain a firm understanding of the most important topics in the theory and applications of complex variables. Topics include the complex plane, basic properties of analytic functions, analytic functions as mappings, analytic and harmonic functions in applications, and transform methods. Perfect for undergrads/grad students in science, mathematics, engineering. A three-semester course in calculus is sole prerequisite. 1990 edition. Appendices.
