This textbook is intended for a one semester course in complex analysis for upper level undergraduates in mathematics. Applications, primary motivations for this text, are presented hand-in-hand with theory enabling this text to serve well in courses for students in engineering or applied sciences. The overall aim in designing this text is to accommodate students of different mathematical backgrounds and to achieve a balance between presentations of rigorous mathematical proofs and applications. The text is adapted to enable maximum flexibility to instructors and to students who may also choose to progress through the material outside of coursework. Detailed examples may be covered in one course, giving the instructor the option to choose those that are best suited for discussion. Examples showcase a variety of problems with completely worked out solutions, assisting students in working through the exercises. The numerous exercises vary in difficulty from simple applications of formulas to more advanced project-type problems. Detailed hints accompany the more challenging problems. Multi-part exercises may be assigned to individual students, to groups as projects, or serve as further illustrations for the instructor. Widely used graphics clarify both concrete and abstract concepts, helping students visualize the proofs of many results. Freely accessible solutions to every-other-odd exercise are posted to the book’s Springer website. Additional solutions for instructors’ use may be obtained by contacting the authors directly.

The second edition of this comprehensive and accessible text continues to offer students a challenging and enjoyable study of complex variables that is infused with perfect balanced coverage of mathematical theory and applied topics. The author explains fundamental concepts and techniques with precision and introduces the students to complex variable theory through conceptual develop-ment of analysis that enables them to develop a thorough understanding of the topics discussed. Geometric interpretation of the results, wherever necessary, has been inducted for making the analysis more accessible. The level of the text assumes that the reader is acquainted with elementary real analysis. Beginning with the revision of the algebra of complex variables, the book moves on to deal with analytic functions, elementary functions, complex integration, sequences, series and infinite products, series expansions, singularities and residues. The application-oriented chapters on sums and integrals, conformal mappings, Laplace transform, and some special topics, provide a practical-use perspective. Enriched with many numerical examples and exercises designed to test the student's comprehension of the topics covered, this book is written for a one-semester course in complex variables for students in the science and engineering disciplines.

From the algebraic properties of a complete number field, to the analytic properties imposed by the Cauchy integral formula, to the geometric qualities originating from conformality, Complex Variables: A Physical Approach with Applications and MATLAB explores all facets of this subject, with particular emphasis on using theory in practice. The first five chapters encompass the core material of the book. These chapters cover fundamental concepts, holomorphic and harmonic functions, Cauchy theory and its applications, and isolated singularities. Subsequent chapters discuss the argument principle, geometric theory, and conformal mapping, followed by a more advanced discussion of harmonic functions. The author also presents a detailed glimpse of how complex variables are used in the real world, with chapters on Fourier and Laplace transforms as well as partial differential equations and boundary value problems. The final chapter explores computer tools, including Mathematica®, MapleTM, and MATLAB®, that can be employed to study complex variables. Each chapter contains physical applications drawing from the areas of physics and engineering. Offering new directions for further learning, this text provides modern students with a powerful toolkit for future work in the mathematical sciences.

Die komplexen Zahlen haben ihre historischen Wurzeln im 16. Jahrhundert, sie entstanden bei dem Versuch, algebmische Gleichungen zu lösen. So führte schon G. CARDANO (1545) formale Ausdrücke wie zum Beispiel 5 ± v'-15 ein, um Lösungen quadratischer und kubischer Gleichungen angeben zu können. R. BOMBELLI rechnete um 1560 bereits systematisch mit diesen Ausdrücken 3 und fand 4 als Lösung der Gleichung x = 15x + 4 in der verschlüsselten Form 4 = ~2 + v'-121 + ~2 - v'-121. Auch bei G. W. LEIBNIZ (1675) findet man Gleichungen dieser Art, wie z. B. VI + v'=3 + Vl- v'=3 = v'6. Im Jahre 1777 führte L. EULER die Bezeichnung i = A für die imaginäre Einheit ein. Der Fachausdruck "komplexe Zahl" stammt von C. F. GAUSS (1831). Die strenge Einführung der komplexen Zahlen als Paare reeller Zahlen geht auf W. R. HAMILTON (1837) zurück. Schon in der reellen Analysis ist es gelegentlich vorteilhaft, komplexe Zahlen einzuführen. Man denke beispielsweise an die Integration rationaler Funktio nen, die auf der Partialbruchentwicklung und damit auf dem Fundamentalsatz der Algebra beruht: Über dem Körper der komplexen Zahlen zerfällt jedes Polynom in ein Produkt von Linearfaktoren.

This introduction to complex variable methods begins by carefully defining complex numbers and analytic functions, and proceeds to give accounts of complex integration, Taylor series, singularities, residues and mappings. Both algebraic and geometric tools are employed to provide the greatest understanding, with many diagrams illustrating the concepts introduced. The emphasis is laid on understanding the use of methods, rather than on rigorous proofs. Throughout the text, many of the important theoretical results in complex function theory are followed by relevant and vivid examples in physical sciences. This second edition now contains 350 stimulating exercises of high quality, with solutions given to many of them. Material has been updated and additional proofs on some of the important theorems in complex function theory are now included, e.g. the Weierstrass–Casorati theorem. The book is highly suitable for students wishing to learn the elements of complex analysis in an applied context.

An understanding of functions of a complex variable, together with the importance of their applications, form an essential part of the study of mathematics. Complex Variables and their Applications assumes as little background knowledge of the reader as is practically possible, a sound knowledge of calculus and basic real analysis being the only essential pre-requisites. With an emphasis on clear and careful explanation, the book covers all the essential topics covered in a first course on Complex Variables, such as differentiation, integration and applications, Laurent series, residue theory and applications, and elementary conformal mappings. The reader is also introduced to the Schwarz-Christoffel transformation, Dirchlet problems, harmonic functions, analytic continuation, infinite products, asymptotic series and elliptic functions. Applications of complex variable theory to linear ordinary differential equations and integral transforms are also included. Complex Variables and their Applications is an ideal textbook and resource for second and final year students of mathematics, engineering and physics.
