  • Generous in the number of examples, exercises, and applications provided
  • Applications include electric potentials, heat conduction, and hydrodynamics-studied with the aid of harmonic functions, conformal mappings, Laplace transforms, asymptotic expansions, and Gamma and Bessel functions
  • Intuitive approach enables application-oriented students to skip the more technical parts without sacrificing an understanding of the main theoretical points
  • Highly readable text motivates students and encourages self-study
