A Guide to Complex Variables
Steven G. Krantz
A Guide to Complex Variables gives the reader a quick and accessible introduction to the key topics. In addition to important ideas from the Cauchy theory, the book includes the Riemann mapping theorem, harmonic functions, the argument principle, general conformal mapping and dozens of other central topics. While the coverage is not comprehensive, it certainly gives the reader a solid grounding in this fundamental area. There are many figures and examples to illustrate the principal ideas, and the exposition is lively and inviting. An undergraduate wanting to have a first look at this subject or a graduate student preparing for the qualifying exams, will find this book to be a useful resource.
Readers will find this book to be a useful companion to more exhaustive texts in the field. It is a valuable resource for mathematicians and non-mathematicians alike.
A hardcover version of this book is available in our print bookstore.
