New edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. Sevart, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Wichita"An extremely useful textbook for both formal classes and for self-study. 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.
The text is divided into two basic parts: The first part Chapters is devoted to the theory of complex variables and begins with an outline of the structure of system analysis and an explanation of basic mathematical and engineering terms. Chapter 2 treats the foundation of the theory of a complex variable, centered around the Cauchy-Riemann equations. The next three chapters -- conformal mapping, complex integration, and infinite series -- lead up to a particularly important chapter on multivalued functions, explaining the concepts of stability, branch points, and riemann surfaces. Numerous diagrams illustrate the physical applications of the mathematical concepts involved.
The second part Chapters covers Fourier and Laplace transform theory and some of its applications in engineering, beginning with a chapter on real integrals. Three important chapters follow on the Fourier integral, the Laplace integral one-sided and two-sided and convolution integrals. After a chapter on additional properties of the Laplace integral, the book ends with four chapters on the application of transform theory to the solution of ordinary linear integrodifferential equations with constant coefficients, impulse functions, periodic functions, and the increasingly important Z transform.
LePage's book is unique in its coverage of an unusually broad range of topics difficult to find in a single volume, while at the same time stressing fundamental concepts, careful attention to details and correct use of terminology. An extensive selection of interesting and valuable problems follows each chapter, and an excellent bibliography recommends further reading.
