These classic textbooks, specializing in the techniques and applications of advanced mathematics to physical science and engineering, have endured as perennial standards for more than 60 years. The latest editions preserve the hallmark features that made Brown and Churchill a household name in advanced mathematics education-clear and concise exposition, interesting examples, and accessible level-while adding new enhancements, improved organization, and more modern examples and applications to serve another generation of students.
Complex Variables and Applications provides a one-term introduction to the theory and application of functions of a complex variable. Its primary objective is to develop those parts of the theory that are prominent in the applications of the subject. Numerous applications to the physical sciences and engineering are provided throughout, including those suitable for reference and self-study.
Fourier Series and Boundary Value Problems provides an introduction to partial differential equations for students who have completed a first course in ordinary differential equations. The text's primary objective is to develop the concepts of Fourier series and their applications to boundary value problems by finding solutions to specific problems rather than developing general theories. Detailed physical applications are provided in a straightforward and accessible manner.
