Topics include the complex plane, basic properties of analytic functions, analytic functions as mappings, analytic and harmonic functions in applications, transform methods. Hundreds of solved examples, exercises, applications. 1990 edition. Appendices.
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. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
