"An excellent text; the best I have found on the subject." — J. B. Sevart, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Wichita
"An extremely useful textbook for both formal classes and for self-study." — Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics
Engineers often do not have time to take a course in complex variable theory as undergraduates, yet is is one of the most important and useful branches of mathematics, with many applications in engineering. This text is designed to remedy that need by supplying graduate engineering students (especially electrical engineering) with a course in the basic theory of complex variables, which in turn is essential to the understanding of transform theory. Presupposing a good knowledge of calculus, the book deals lucidly and rigorously with important mathematical concepts, striking an ideal balance between purely mathematical treatments that are too general for the engineer, and books of applied engineering which may fail to stress significant mathematical ideas.
