Shorter version of Markushevich's Theory of Functions of a Complex Variable, appropriate for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in complex analysis. More than 300 problems, some with hints and answers. 1967 edition.
Introductory Complex and Analysis Applications provides an introduction to the functions of a complex variable, emphasizing applications. This book covers a variety of topics, including integral transforms, asymptotic expansions, harmonic functions, Fourier transformation, and infinite series. Organized into eight chapters, this book begins with an overview of the theory of functions of a complex variable. This text then examines the properties of analytical functions, which are all consequences of the differentiability of the function. Other chapters consider the converse of Taylor's Theorem, namely that convergent power series are analytical functions in their domain of convergence. This book discusses as well the Residue Theorem, which is of fundamental significance in complex analysis and is the core concept in the development of the techniques. The final chapter deals with the method of steepest descent, which is useful in determining the asymptotic behavior of integral representations of analytic functions. This book is a valuable resource for undergraduate students in engineering and mathematics.

This book describes a classical introductory part of complex analysis for university students in the sciences and engineering and could serve as a text or reference book. It places emphasis on rigorous proofs, presenting the subject as a fundamental mathematical theory. The volume begins with a problem dealing with curves related to Cauchy's integral theorem. To deal with it rigorously, the author gives detailed descriptions of the homotopy of plane curves. Since the residue theorem is important in both pure and applied mathematics, the author gives a fairly detailed explanation of how to apply it to numerical calculations; this should be sufficient for those who are studying complex analysis as a tool.

This textbook introduces the subject of complex analysis to advanced undergraduate and graduate students in a clear and concise manner. Key features of this textbook: effectively organizes the subject into easily manageable sections in the form of 50 class-tested lectures, uses detailed examples to drive the presentation, includes numerous exercise sets that encourage pursuing extensions of the material, each with an “Answers or Hints” section, covers an array of advanced topics which allow for flexibility in developing the subject beyond the basics, provides a concise history of complex numbers. An Introduction to Complex Analysis will be valuable to students in mathematics, engineering and other applied sciences. Prerequisites include a course in calculus.
The basics of what every scientist and engineer should know, from complex numbers, limits in the complex plane, and complex functions to Cauchy's theory, power series, and applications of residues. 1974 edition.
A thorough introduction to the theory of complex functions emphasizing the beauty, power, and counterintuitive nature of the subject Written with a reader-friendly approach, Complex Analysis: A Modern First Course in Function Theory features a self-contained, concise development of the fundamental principles of complex analysis. After laying groundwork on complex numbers and the calculus and geometric mapping properties of functions of a complex variable, the author uses power series as a unifying theme to define and study the many rich and occasionally surprising properties of analytic functions, including the Cauchy theory and residue theorem. The book concludes with a treatment of harmonic functions and an epilogue on the Riemann mapping theorem. Thoroughly classroom tested at multiple universities, Complex Analysis: A Modern First Course in Function Theory features: Plentiful exercises, both computational and theoretical, of varying levels of difficulty, including several that could be used for student projects Numerous figures to illustrate geometric concepts and constructions used in proofs Remarks at the conclusion of each section that place the main concepts in context, compare and contrast results with the calculus of real functions, and provide historical notes Appendices on the basics of sets and functions and a handful of useful results from advanced calculus Appropriate for students majoring in pure or applied mathematics as well as physics or engineering, Complex Analysis: A Modern First Course in Function Theory is an ideal textbook for a one-semester course in complex analysis for those with a strong foundation in multivariable calculus. The logically complete book also serves as a key reference for mathematicians, physicists, and engineers and is an excellent source for anyone interested in independently learning or reviewing the beautiful subject of complex analysis.

Complex variables offer very efficient methods for attacking many difficult problems, and it is the aim of this book to offer a thorough review of these methods and their applications. Part I is an introduction to the subject, including residue calculus and transform methods. Part II advances to conformal mappings, and the study of Riemann-Hilbert problems. An extensive array of examples and exercises are included. This new edition has been improved throughout and is ideal for use in introductory undergraduate and graduate level courses in complex variables.
