Preface
This book is the fruit of many years of teaching complex variablesto students in applied mathematics by the first author and research bythe third author with the close collaboration of the second author, whotranslated a preliminary Russian versionof the text and collected and solvedall the exercises. It is an extended course in complex analysis and itsapplications, written in a style that is particulary well-suited for studentsin applied mathematics, science and engineering, and for users of complexanalysis in the applications.The first half of the book is a clear and rigorous introduction to thetheory of functions of one complex variable. The second half contains theevaluation of many new integration formulae and the summation of newinfinite series by the calculus of residue. The last chapter is concerned withthe Fatou–Julia theory for meromorphic functions for finding selective rootsof some transcendental equations as found in the applications.Chapter 1 reviews the representation of complex numbers and intro-duces analytic (holomorphic) functions. In Chapter 2, both traditional andnon-traditional problems in conformal mapping are solved in great detail.Chapter 2 depends only on Chapter 1 and is independent of the otherchapters; thus it can be taken any time, after the study of the first chapter.Chapters 3, 4, 5, 6 and 9 can be covered in that order.Chapters 7, 8, 10 and 11 cover more specialized topics and are beyonda usual introduction to analytic functions.The short bibliography lists common references in English and in Rus-sian and a few research papers.The exercises are elementary and aim at the understanding of the the-ory of analytic functions. Some of them can be easily solved with symbolicsoftware on computers. Answers to almost all odd-numbered exercises arefound at the end of the book.The text benefitted from the remarks made by generations of studentsat the Riga Technical University and at the University of Ottawa. MissEllen Yanqing Zheng has read a preliminary version of the book in thewinter of 1994 and made many corrections.

CHAPTER 1
Functions of a Complex Variable
1.1. Complex numbers1.1.1. Algebraic operations on complex numbers.
Definition
1.1.1
.
A
complex number 
z
is an ordered pair, (
x,y
), of real numbers,
x
and
y
, where
x
is called the
real part 
of 
z
, written
x
=
z
,and
y
is called the
imaginary part
of 
z
, written
y
=
z
. The set of complexnumbers is denoted by
C
.For clarity, the expressions
z
-plane 
and
w
-plane 
will be used to mean
z
C
and
w
C
, respectively, when referring to different copies of 
C
.Two complex numbers,
z
1
= (
x
1
,y
1
) and
z
2
= (
x
2
,y
2
), are
equal 
,written
z
1
=
z
2
, if and only if their real and imaginary parts are equal; thatis, if and only if 
x
1
=
x
2
and
y
1
=
y
2
.
Definition
1.1.2
.
The
sum
of two complex numbers,
z
1
= (
x
1
,y
1
) and
z
2
= (
x
2
,y
2
), is defined to be the complex number
z
=
z
1
+
z
2
= (
x
1
+
x
2
,y
1
+
y
2
)
.
The
commutativity 
and the
associativity 
of the addition,
z
1
+
z
2
=
z
2
+
z
1
,z
1
+ (
z

) = (
z

+
z
2
) +
z
3
,
follow from Definition 1.1.2. The complex number
zero
, 0 = (0
,
0), suchthat
z
+ 0 =
z
for all
z
C
, is introduced in the same way as the realnumber 0 in the set of real numbers.
Definition
1.1.3
.
The
product
of two complex numbers,
z
1
= (
x
1
,y
1
)and
z
2
= (
x
2
,y
2
), is defined to be the complex number
z
=
z
1
z
2
= (
x

x
2

1

2
,x
