The book constitutes a basic, concise, yet rigorous course in complex analysis, for students who have studied calculus in one and several variables, but have not previously been exposed to complex analysis. The textbook should be particularly useful and relevant for undergraduate students in joint programmes with mathematics, as well as engineering students. The aim of the book is to cover the bare bones of the subject with minimal prerequisites. The core content of the book is the three main pillars of complex analysis: the Cauchy–Riemann equations, the Cauchy Integral Theorem, and Taylor and Laurent series expansions. Each section contains several problems, which are not purely drill exercises, but are rather meant to reinforce the fundamental concepts. Detailed solutions to all the exercises appear at the end of the book, making the book ideal also for self-study. There are many figures illustrating the text. Errata(s) Errata (72 KB)

An ideal choice for a first course in complex analysis, this book can be used either as a classroom text or for independent study. Written in an informal style by a master expositor, the book distills more than half a century of experience with the subject into a lucid, engaging, yet rigorous account. The book reveals both the power of complex analysis as a tool for applications and the intrinsic beauty of the subject as a fundamental part of pure mathematics. Written at the level of courses commonly taught in American universities to seniors and beginning graduate students, the book is suitable for readers acquainted with advanced calculus or introductory real analysis. The treatment goes beyond the standard material of power series, Cauchy's theorem, residues, conformal mapping, and harmonic functions by including accessible discussions of many intriguing topics that are uncommon in a book at this level. Readers will encounter notions ranging from Landau's notation to overconvergent series to the Phragmén-Lindelöf theorem. The flexibility afforded by the supplementary topics and applications makes the book adaptable either to a short, one-term course or to a comprehensive, full-year course.The writing is user-friendly in many ways. Each topic is discussed in a typical, commonly encountered situation rather than in the most general, abstract setting. There are no numbered equations. Numerous exercises interspersed in the text encourage readers to test their understanding of new concepts and techniques as they are presented. Detailed solutions of the exercises, included at the back of the book, both serve as models for students and facilitate independent study. Supplementary exercises at the ends of sections, not solved in the book, provide an additional teaching tool.This second edition of Invitation to Complex Analysis has been painstakingly revised by the author's son, himself an award-winning mathematical expositor.

This book concisely addresses the classical results of the field, emphasizes the beauty, power, and counterintuitive nature of the subject, and moves the notion of power series front and center, giving readers a primary tool to deal with problems from modern function theory. Uniquely defines analyticity in terms of power series (as opposed to differentiability), making power series a central concept and tool to solve problems Features many “counterintuitive” concepts as a learning tool, such as addressing Liouville's Theorem, the factorization of analytic function, the Open Mapping Theorem, and the Maximum Principle in quick succession early on in the book in an attempt to prepare readers for the development of the Cauchy integral theory Classroom tested for 10+ years by the author at the University of Scranton as well as colleagues at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and Adams State College Presents sequences and series early on, distinguishes complex analysis from real analysis and calculus, and emphasizes geometry when analyzing complex functions Contains appendices for basic notation of sets and functions as well as necessary topics from advanced calculus, such as Leibnitz's Rule and Fubini's Theorem An Instructor's Manual containing all solutions is available via request to the Publisher. Written with a reader-friendly approach and provides a wide range of exercises and numerous figures throughout, allowing readers to gain intuition for solving problems.

The text covers a broad spectrum between basic and advanced complex variables on the one hand and between theoretical and applied or computational material on the other hand. With careful selection of the emphasis put on the various sections, examples, and exercises, the book can be used in a one- or two-semester course for undergraduate mathematics majors, a one-semester course for engineering or physics majors, or a one-semester course for first-year mathematics graduate students. It has been tested in all three settings at the University of Utah. The exposition is clear, concise, and lively. There is a clean and modern approach to Cauchy's theorems and Taylor series expansions, with rigorous proofs but no long and tedious arguments. This is followed by the rich harvest of easy consequences of the existence of power series expansions. Through the central portion of the text, there is a careful and extensive treatment of residue theory and its application to computation of integrals, conformal mapping and its applications to applied problems, analytic continuation, and the proofs of the Picard theorems. Chapter 8 covers material on infinite products and zeroes of entire functions. This leads to the final chapter which is devoted to the Riemann zeta function, the Riemann Hypothesis, and a proof of the Prime Number Theorem.

The second edition of Plane Answers has many additions and a couple of deletions. New material includes additional illustrative examples in Ap pendices A and B and Chapters 2 and 3, as well as discussions of Bayesian estimation, near replicate lack of fit tests, testing the independence assump tion, testing variance components, the interblock analysis for balanced in complete block designs, nonestimable constraints, analysis of unreplicated experiments using normal plots, tensors, and properties of Kronecker prod ucts and Vee operators. The book contains an improved discussion of the relation between ANOVA and regression, and an improved presentation of general Gauss-Markov models. The primary material that has been deleted are the discussions of weighted means and of log-linear models. The mate rial on log-linear models was included in Christensen (1990b), so it became redundant here. Generally, I have tried to clean up the presentation of ideas wherever it seemed obscure to me. Much of the work on the second edition was done while on sabbatical at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand. I would par ticularly like to thank John Deely for arranging my sabbatical. Through their comments and criticisms, four people were particularly helpful in con structing this new edition. I would like to thank Wes Johnson, Snehalata Huzurbazar, Ron Butler, and Vance Berger.

An Introduction to Complex Analysis and Geometry provides the reader with a deep appreciation of complex analysis and how this subject fits into mathematics. The book developed from courses given in the Campus Honors Program at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. These courses aimed to share with students the way many mathematics and physics problems magically simplify when viewed from the perspective of complex analysis. The book begins at an elementary level but also contains advanced material. The first four chapters provide an introduction to complex analysis with many elementary and unusual applications. Chapters 5 through 7 develop the Cauchy theory and include some striking applications to calculus. Chapter 8 glimpses several appealing topics, simultaneously unifying the book and opening the door to further study. The 280 exercises range from simple computations to difficult problems. Their variety makes the book especially attractive. A reader of the first four chapters will be able to apply complex numbers in many elementary contexts. A reader of the full book will know basic one complex variable theory and will have seen it integrated into mathematics as a whole. Research mathematicians will discover several novel perspectives.

Engineering has experienced a technological revolution, but the basic engineering techniques applied in safety and reliability engineering, created in a simpler, analog world, have changed very little over the years. In this groundbreaking book, Nancy Leveson proposes a new approach to safety -- more suited to today's complex, sociotechnical, software-intensive world -- based on modern systems thinking and systems theory. Revisiting and updating ideas pioneered by 1950s aerospace engineers in their System Safety concept, and testing her new model extensively on real-world examples, Leveson has created a new approach to safety that is more effective, less expensive, and easier to use than current techniques.Arguing that traditional models of causality are inadequate, Leveson presents a new, extended model of causation (Systems-Theoretic Accident Model and Processes, or STAMP), then then shows how the new model can be used to create techniques for system safety engineering, including accident analysis, hazard analysis, system design, safety in operations, and management of safety-critical systems. She applies the new techniques to real-world events including the friendly-fire loss of a U.S. Blackhawk helicopter in the first Gulf War; the Vioxx recall; the U.S. Navy SUBSAFE program; and the bacterial contamination of a public water supply in a Canadian town. Leveson's approach is relevant even beyond safety engineering, offering techniques for "reengineering" any large sociotechnical system to improve safety and manage risk.

A First Course in Complex Analysis was developed from lecture notes for a one-semester undergraduate course taught by the authors. For many students, complex analysis is the first rigorous analysis (if not mathematics) class they take, and these notes reflect this. The authors try to rely on as few concepts from real analysis as possible. In particular, series and sequences are treated from scratch.
