The really efJicient laborer will be found not to crowd his day with work, but wil saunter to his task surrounded by a wide halo of ease and leisure. Henry David Thoreau, Notebooks, 184:

As I was completing the manuscript of this edition of my book, one of m: relatives, a distinguished scientist and one-time student of the English mathematicia] E. C. Titchmarsh, asked me, "Has complex variables really changed much since you previous edition?'The perhaps facetious question merits a serious response. In truth, there have not been major breakthroughs in the fundamentals of comple: variable theory in many decades. What has changed, and what will continue t( change, is the nature of the topics that are of interest in engineering and appliec science; the evolution of books such as mine is a history of these shifting concerns A text on complex variables and its applications written at the start of the twen tieth century would dwell on the power and beauty of conformal mapping, whichb: the late 1800s had established itself as a tool for the solutions of problems in fluic mechanics, heat conduction, and electromagnetic theory. Now we are less in 0 this technique and are more apt to be impressed by commercial software package that will unravel not only the idealized problems solvable by conformal mappin; but also more complex configurations employing the realistic boundary condition encountered in an engineer's design. The old canonical solutions, obtained a centur: or more ago, now serve as touchstones to help us verify the plausibility of what i emerging from our computers.






The early decades of the twentieth century saw the spread of electrification throughout the industrializing nations. The use of long-distance power and c0-unications lines, which are analyzed with hyperbolic functions, made it imperative that engineers have some understanding of the behavior of these functions for complex argument. Indeed, one Harvard professor even wrote an entire text on this subject. Now, with pocket-sized calculators available that will yield the values of sinh z and cosh z throughout the complex plane, the topic no longer requires special attention. The engineering of feedback control systems and of linear systems in general became well established in World War 11, and so in the two postwar decades we find texts on complex variables emphasizing the underlying theory required for such work, i.e., the Nyquist stability criterion, which is based on the principle of the argument, and the Laplace transform. This is nineteenth-century mathematics brought to prominence by the needs of the mid-twentieth century. In writing the current edition, I have been influenced by several recent developments. Today, virtually all science and engineering students have access to a mathematical software package such as MATLAB or such close spiritual cousins as Mathematica and MathCad. These are as pervasive on college campuses as the slide rule was a half century or more ago, and a great deal more useful. Familiarity with these languages and utilities is explicitly encouraged in higher education by the accrediting organization for engineering programs. I have therefore distributed exercises involving MATLAB throughout the text, but I have not written the book in such a way that inclusion of these problems is in any way mandatory for the flow of the discussion. Teachers can use the book in the conventional manner, without regard to the computer. Moreover, faculty who prefer to use other software should be able to solve these same problems with their favorite alternative. Here and there I have generated plots for the text by using MATLAB, not only because I found the results illuminating, but also because I wanted to encourage readers to experiment on their own with computer graphics in the complex plane. One of the pronounced trends in the evolution of mathematics textbooks of the past few decades is the inclusion of biographical and historical notes-an obvious observation if one compares an introductory calculus book of 1960 with a contemporary one. This is a welcome change-one that helps dramatize the subject-and so I have expanded the historical remarks that I included in the previous edition. In this endeavor, I have been greatly aided by two sources. One is a recent book, An Imaginary Tale: The Story of f l by Paul J. Nahin,* a professor of electrical engineering who clearly loves the history of complex variable theory as well as its application to electrical engineering. His work, which begins with a personal anecdote based on a 1954 issue of Popular Electronics, is sheer delight. I also recommend the web site on the history of mathematics maintained by the University of St. Andrews (Scotland), which is a fine resource that I have referred to often. I have eliminated some topics and introduced certain new ones in this edition. Recognizing that Nyquist plots are now routinely generated with computer software such as MATLAB, and are rarely sketched by hand, I have reduced their space. The rather difficult section on how to integrate around infinity has been simplified

and incorporated into the exercises in section 6.3, and I have written a new sectior on a major topic-the gamma function. Hilbert transforms continue to be useful ir engineering, and I have now included them for the first time; they join in this book the important transformations of Fourier and Laplace as well as the z transform Representations of analytic functions with infinite products and infinite series oj partial fractions are handy tools for the numerical analyst. They often give bettel accuracy than power series, and they are being introduced in this edition. Fractalr continue to entertain and mystify, and they have found increasing use in engineering and the graphic arts in the decade since the previous edition appeared. I have addec some exercises in the fractals section that encourage students to write their owr: computer code to generate fractal patterns. Almost all of the elementary problems in the book have been changed, which means that teachers who have used the previous edition will, I hope, be shaken from the lethargy and boredom induced by an overly familiar text. A voluminous solutions manual is available for college faculty who are using this book in their teaching. It contains a detailed solution to every problem in the text, as well as required computer code written in the MATLAB language. Teachers who need the manual may write to me on their institution's stationery or they may obtain the manual directly from the publisher. I hope it proves useful in those vexing moments when one is stuck on a question at midnight that must be answered in tomorrow's lecture. In the back of this text the reader will find the answers to the odd-numbered exercises, except that proofs are not supplied and neither is any computer code. I would like to be notified of errors in the book, and wrong answers found in the back of the text as well as in the manual. I can say with complete confidence that they can be discovered. My e-mail address is included with my postal address. Corrections to the book will be posted at the web address, is maintained which by the University of Massachusetts Lowell. There is nearly enough material in this textbook to fill two semesters of an introductory course. I would suggest for a single-semester treatment that one to cover the majority of the sections in the first six chapters with perhaps mme time devoted to favorite topics in the remaining three. I see my reader as S X - I - I ~ using the book in a first course in complex variable theory and later referring to itespecially the applications-whle in industry or graduate school. In my writing, ] have tried to follow Thoreau's advice quoted at the beginning of this introduction: each section begins with a gentle saunter-I want the reader not to be intimidated. However, the material within a section becomes more difficult, as does each succeeding chapter. I have taught this subject to engineering students for Ovel 30 years and am still distressed at what they have failed to recall from their basic calculus courses. Thus, one will encounter elementary material (e.g., real well as some exercises that review how to take advantage of even and odd symmetneE in integrands. 1 have listed four references at the end of this introduction. For students whc wish to delve into complex variable theory more deeply while they are reading thir text, I can recommend Brown and Churchill, an elegant book with a somewhat highel degree of rigor than mine. Those seeking yet more challenge should read Marsder

Thus. In this example. 1. all of whose points belong to the set. insider every circle such as Co. We will often speak of simply and multiply connected domains. The null set contains no points. elements of the set are generated that lie increasingly close to z = 0. Thus the set of points shown shaded in Fig.5-9 A connected set is one in which any two points of the set can be joined by some path of straight line segments. it is always possible to construct some closed curve inside a multiply connected domain in such a way that one or more points inside the curve do not belong to the domain (see Fig. there are points belonging to and not belonging to the given set.5-9(a) is not connected since we cannot join a and b by a path within the set.1I 5 1.

Although in this case the boundary point is a member of the set in question.

However. which contains a circular hole. Thus z = 1 + i / 2 is an interior point of the set l . but a multiply connected domain z l has one or more holes. An example of the former is l < 2. the accumulation point does not belong to the set. when any closed < curve is constructed in a simply connected domain. has z = 0 as an accumulation point. all of whose elements belong to the set.5-10 A boundarypoint of a set is a point whose every neighborhood contains at least one point belonging to the set and one point not belonging to the set. A domain is an open connected set. Every circle centered at the origin will contain members of the set. 1. and an example of the latter is 1 < /z( 2. 1. However.

Yet on some special occasions we might refer to a function having an injinite limit. The principal value of arg z is discontinuous at all points on the negative real axis because it fails to have a limit at every such point. Thus the sum z2 z 1 is continuous for all z. b) limz. We factor the numerator in the above quotient as follows. in certain cases the proofs are not easy.i common to both numerator and denominator. y) lying inside a circle of radius 6 centered at (xo. Because f(i) is defined. diflerences. The definition of continuity for complex functions of a complex variable is to that for real functions of a real variable. g(z) = 1/z2 is continuous for all z # 0.. which means that arg z is discontinuous there as well. arg z is undefined at z = 0. . so is the product z . we are not dividing by zero.§ and we will find that this function is continuous for all z. We can use part (a) of the theorem to investigate the continuity of the quotient (z2 + z + I ) / ( ~ ' . This has a precise meaning. It is not hard to show that f ( z ) is continuous for all ) Z'# i.

Such an expression is continuous except for values of z satisfying Q(z) = 0. and these two results are not in agreement. in fact. y) are continuous$ at any point where f(z) is continuous. The quotient of these two polynomials is therefore continuous except where z2 . f (z) is also. such that 1f(z) I 5 M for all z in R. Since u = ex cosy and v = ex sin y are continuous in R.i f(z). Since the value of this z limit does not depend on f (i). A similar procedure applies to any rational function P(z)/Q(z).where z is complex.

(3. + ' D E F I ~ ~ ~ Cut) ~ A ~ used to create a domain of analyticity is line (Branch ~ w e d a branch line or branch cut. This function is defined for all z except z = 0 and values of z on the negative real axis. This line is an example of a branch cut. Having discovered a domain D in which Logz is continuous. we must have at our disposal a m a s for selecting one of the possible values of this function and we must also state the domain of analyticity of the resulting single-valued function. except if z is a negative real number. (2. Note that Eq. 4 + +hedomain D. Equation ( 3 . it is not a branch of logz. Let us write Log z as u(r. we have + (Branch) A branch of a multivalued function is a single-valued DE~~ITION function analytic in some domain. We can readily find the derivative of Log z within this domain of analyticity.4-6). the partial derivatives aular. There are other branches of logz that are analytic in the domain D of Fig. which consists of the z-plane with the points on the negative real axis and origin "cut out.5-2). y) is given in Exercise 1 of this Section. .5. u and v do satisfy the Cauchy-Riemann equations. From Eq. (3. From Eq. a Thus. the single-valued function must assume exactly one of the various possible values that the multivalued function can assume.v*- . the principal value Logz. where - 31x12 < O 5 7112. when Figure 3 5 3 . If f(z(r. The situation is illustrated in Fig. x i 0 from the XY-plane. We will also use Log z to mean the principal branch of the logarithmic function. it is conve. as before. We have used the notation Log z to mean the principal value of log z. 8) iv(r. then Eq. 8).54) is inapplicable along the negative real axis and the origin. The single-valued function w(z) = Log z for which z is restricted to the domain D is said to be a branch of log z. As it stands.122 Chapter 3 The Basic Transcendental Functions 3. However. An alternative derivation involving u(x. (2. av/a8. we obtain .

DEFINITION (Branch Point) Any point that must lie on a branch cut-no matter what branch is used-is called a branch point of a multivalued function. the given function will yield an analytic branch of the loga@thmicfunction in a domain consisting of the xy-plane with the origin and negative imaginary axis removed. The reader can readily verify that the logarithmic functions t Figure 3. the branches of some multivalued functions that are more complicated than log z require the use of more than one branch cut in order to be defined.8. A branch cut in the xy-plane. For points on this axis 8 = 37112.5-7. Thus to answer . 5 4 . Part (b): An analytic function varies continuously within its domain of analyticity. will eliminate all the singular points of the given function. In so doing we would e the branch cut and thereby leave the domain of analyticity. 3. the two branch cuts 1 : EXAMPLE 1 Consider the logarithmic function 1 A a) Find the largest domain of analyticity of f(z) = Log[z b) Find the numerical value of f (0).i from a point on the positive x-axis. domain in which t h s function defines an analytic branch o i the log. 5 4 +Branch cut I I z is restricted to the domain Dl shown in Fig.5-6 to reach the same point.

of a circle, the formula will tell us the value of this function everywhere outside the circle. The formula presumes that the harmonic function sought is bounded (its is I a constant) in the domain external to the circle. All the work in this section is based on the writings of a Frenchman, SimConDenis Poisson, who lived from 1781to 1840. The reader has perhaps encountered his name in connection with probability theory (the Poisson distribution) or electrostatics (the Poisson equation). He is credited with helping to bring mathematical analysis to bear on the subjects of electricity, magnetism, and elasticity.

EXAMPLE 1 An electrically conducting tube of unit radius is separated into two halves by means of infinitesimal slits. The top half of the tube ( R = 1, 0 < 4 < n ) is maintained at an electrical potential of 1 volt while the bottom half ( R = 1, 71 < 4 < 2n) is at -1 volt. Find the potential at an arbitrary point ( r , 8) inside the tube (see Fig. 4.7-2). Assume there is a dielectric material inside the tube.

A corresponding expression relates V ( r ,8 ) and V ( R ,4 ) and is obtained by our equating imaginary parts in Eq. (4.7-5). Equation (4.7-6), the Poisson integral formula, is important. The formula yields the value of the harmonic function U(r, 8 ) everywhere inside a circle of radius R, Provided we know the values U(R, 4 ) assumed by U on the circumference of the circle, Since we required that f ( z ) be analytic inside, and on, the circle of radW the reader must assume that the function U(R, 4) in Eq. (4.7-6) is continuous.! fact, this condition can be relaxed to allow U ( R , 4) to have a finite number of finite "jump" discontinuities. The Poisson integral formula will remain valid.+ In Exercise 4 we develop a formula comparable to Eq.

Recalling that tan(nn a) = tan a, where a is any angle and n any integer, and that the arctangent and tangent are both odd functions,$ we can recast Eq. (4.7-8) as follows: U(r, 8) = - tan-'

where the integral is taken along the base and arc of the given contour. Now, since z lies inside the semicircle, observe that 2 must lie in the space v < 0 and is therefore outside the semicircle.

The Dirichlet Problem for a Half Plane (Infinite Line Boundary)
As in the case of the circle, we will state our new Dirichlet problem in the W-plane' Our problem is to find a function $(u, v) that is harmonic in the upper half-plafle

der the Cartesian representations z = x iy, = x - iy, and w = u it.We at z - 2 = 2iy and that w = u along the base. Hence the first integrand on the tin the preceding equation can be rewritten as

'This same conclusion can also be reached through the maximum and minimum principles ( ~ x e r d s ~ ~ and 14, section 4.6), although strictly speaking these principles only apply when the voltage in the region continuous. Our boundary voltage has two points of discontinuity. ' ~ e c a l lthat an odd function f ( x ) is one that satisfies Ax) = - f ( - x ) .


Chapter 4 Integration in the Complex Plane



In Exercise 8 of this section, we discover that, as the radius R of the arc tends to infinity, the value of the integral along the arc in Eq. (4.7-14) goes to zero. The proof requires our assuming the existence of a constant m such that If ( w ) I 5 m for all Im w > 0 , that is, If(w)I is bounded in the upper half plane. Passing to the limit R - oo,we find that Eq. (4.7-14) simplifies to ,

1f f ( w ) is known on the whole real axis of the w-plane (that is, along w = u),this formula will yield the value of the function at any arbitrary point w = z, provided Imz >0. Let us now rewrite f ( z ) and f ( w ) explicitly in terms of real and imaginary parts. With f ( z ) = 4 ( x , y) i$(x, Y ) and f ( w ) = 4 ( u , v ) f i$(u, v ) , we obhG, from Eq. (4.7-151,

Figure 4.7-5


Equating the real parts in this equation, we arrive at the following formula:

4 ( X ,Y ) = -


A corresponding equation, relating $ ( x , y) and $ ( u , 0 ) is obtained if we equate imaginary parts. Equation (4.7-1 6), called the Poisson integral formula for the upper half-plane, will yield the value of a harmonic function 4 ( x , y) anywhere in the upper half plane provided 4 is already completely known over the entire real axis. It can be shown that this is the only solution to the Dirichlet problem that is bounded in the upper half-plane. Without this restriction other solutions can be found. In our derivation we assumed that 4 ( u , v ) is the real part of a function f ( u , v)! which is analytic for Imv 3 0. This would require that 4 ( u , 0 ) in Eq. (4.7-16) be continuous for -oo < u < oo.Actually, this requirement can be relaxed to pennit 4 ( u , 0 ) to have a finite number of finite jumps. We then can still use Eq. (4.7-16). EXAMPLE 2 As indicated in Fig. 4.7-5, the upper half-space Im w > 0 is filled with a heat-conducting material. The boundary v = 0 , u > 0 is maintained at a temperature of 0 while the boundary v = 0 , u < 0 is kept at temperature To. Find? steady-state distribution of temperature 4 ( x , y) throughout the conducting matenal.
Solution. Since, as shown in section 2.6, the temperature is a harmonic function' O; the Poisson integral formula is directly applicable. We have 4 ( u , 0 ) = To, and 4 ( u , 0 ) = 0 , u > 0. T ~ U S

Let us prove our theorem for a simple closed contour C that has this property: If a straight line is drawn parallel to either the x- or y-axis, it will intersect C at two points at most.

Equation (6.6-2) contains the result being sought, while the integral in Eq. (6.6-3) has been evaluated as a bonus. Solving the equation (z - 1)2 = -1 and finding that z = 1 f i, we see that on the fight sides of Eqs. (6.6-2) and (6.6-3), we must evaluate a residue at the simple pole = 1 + i. From Eq.

Rather than supply the details, we instead prove the following theorem and lemma. These not only perfom our required task but many similar ones that we will encounter. Rewriting Eq.

Any rational function f(z) = P(z)/Q(z), where the degree of the polynomial Q(z) exceeds that of the polynomial P(z) by one or more, will fulfill the requirements of the theorem just presented (see Eq. 6.5-9) and leads us to the following lemma.

When v is negative, we do not use Eqs. (6.6- 1I), (6.6-12a), or (6.6-12b). It instructive and useful for later work to have formulas valid for v < 0. The reader ~ould refer to Exercise 16 below where these are stated and derived. MMPLE 1 Evaluate the integrals

Jordan's lemma can be used to assert that the integral over C1 in Eq. (6.6-1) becomes zero as R + co.This was a required step in the derivation of Eqs. (6.6-2) and (6.6-3). We can use this lemma to develop a general formula for evaluating many other integrals involving polynomials and trigonometric functions. Let us evaluate eiuz P(z)/ ~ ( zdz around the closed contour of Fig. 6.5 - 1 by ) using residues.

Now, provided the degrees of Q and P are as described in Eq. (6.6-91, we put R + co in Eq. (6.6- 10) and discard the integral over Cl in this equation by invo'ng Jordan's lermna. We obtain the following:

The second result could have been predicted with no computation since is an odd function that is here integrated between limits symmetric with respect to x = 0. The result must be zero. The preceding answers were derived using a technique that required o > 0. If we place o = 0 in the integrand of each of the above integrals, we find that every integral is easy to evaluate without residues and is zero. Fortunately, the three formulas on the right side of the above results are also zero when w = 0. In general, however, we must be careful about using formulas for values of a parameter not permitted when they were derived-this fact is investigated in Exercise 17. For o < 0, we can evaluate all three of the integrals in this problem by using a semicircular contour (and its limit) that closes in the lower h in Exercise 16. Note, however, that for w < 0 the expression function of x and its integral between symmetric limits will be zero.

A Note on Changing Variables in Contour Integration
Afarniliar tactic for evaluating integrals in real calculus involves a change of variable, also known as the "substitution method." For example, to find sin(x2 3)x di,


one lets u = x2 + 3, drr = 2x dx, so that the integral becomes sin u du, which is easily determined. We have been making changes of variable-in contour inteprals involving functions of a complex variable. This idea was first introduced in section 4.2, where we showed how to perform a contour integration by means of a real parameterization of the contour-we often employed the variable t with its suggestion of time. We have sometimes used the change of variable z = eiH, 5 19I- 2% 0 when the contour in the ;-plane was the unit circle. Changes of variable are not limited to the replacement of a complex variable by a real variable as in the preceding-one may instead make a substitution that involves a switch froin a complex variable to another complex variable. If the transformation illvolving the variable change is an analytic function and if the COntOUrs of integration lie in a bounded domain, there is generally no difficulty and we proceed as in l+i . calculus.t For example, given the problem of evaluating sln(m2 + 2)rdw along some contour in the finite w-plane, we proceed as in elementary 1+i . letting ; w2 + 2 so that d; = w dw, and we find = s1n(w2 f 2)wdW=

6.9 Residue Calculus Applied to Fourier Transforms


we will use a lowercase letter (like f ) to denote a function o f t and the corresponding uppercase letter (here F) to denote its Fourier transform. It is well to note that we have stated ,yuflcient conditions for the existence of F(m). There are functions that fail to satisfy Eq. (6.9- 1) but that do have Fourier transforms (see Exercises 16 and 20 of this section). ~t can be &own that, except for one limitation, the following formula permits us to recover or find f(t) when its Fourier transform is known:

The case t = 0 in ~ q(6.9-5) is considered separately. Evaluating, we find that .


where the integral is a Cauchy principal value. The limitation on Eq. (6.9-3) is that this formula correctly yields f(t) except for values of t where f(t) is discontinuous. Here the formula gives the average of the right- and left-hand limits of f(t), that is, (112)f(t+) (112)f (t-). The function f (t) and its corresponding function F(o) are known as Fourier transform pairs.t Equation (6.9-3) is caned the Fourier integral representation of f(t). We will often regard the variable t as meaning time.






For the function

From Eq. (6.9 -2), we obtain

6.9 Residue Calculus Applied to Fourier Transforms


Fourier transforms are used in the solution of differential equations in much the same way as are phasors. The transform of the sum of two or more functions is the sum of their transforms. A property of Fourier transforms analogous to Property 5 of phasors in the appendix to Chapter 3 would be useful. Thus given the relationship between f(t) and F(w) described by Eq. (6.9-2), we want a quick method for finding the Fourier transform of df/dt, that is, for finding J-?(dfldt) ,-iotdt. Suppose df / d t is piecewise continuous and f (t) is continuous over eveq finite interval on the t-axis, and suppose that f(t) and its derivatives are absolutely integrable. Assume again that limt,*, f(t) = 0. Integrating by parts, we have

which shows that if f(t) has Fourier transform F(o), then df/dt has Fourier transform iwF(w). Thls result is also obtainable from formal differentiation of Eq. (6.9-3); the operator d/dt is placed under the integral sign. With certain restrictions, this procedure can be repeated again and again. Thus, if dnf/dtn is piecewise continuous over every interval on the t-axis and if the lower etc. (including f(t)), are continuous order derivatives d"-'f/dtH-', d"-'f/dtn-', for -oo < t < oo, then the Fourier transform of dnf/dtn is ( i ~ ) ~ F ( w ) . Therefore,


V(w) = iwLl(o)

(6.9-1 1)

provided d nf/dtn and the lower order derivatives (including f(t)) are absolutely integrable and all these functions vanish as t + boo. Equation (6.9-8) is analogous desired time function 1 (t) is now produced from Eqs. (6.9-3) and (6.9- 12). l(t> = 11(t) - ~ ( t ) , (6.9- 13)

surfaces surrounding charged conductors. The reader may wish to consult the reprint of this work, where the subject is developed in Chapter 12 (Val. 1) with beautiful accompanying illustrations in the appendix.? T~~ Germans, H.A. Schwarz and E.B. Christoffel, are credited, because of their work in the period 1869-1 87 1, with greatly advancing the subject of mapping in a way h a t would help the engineer or scientist. A method of transformation bearing their name is sufficiently important to merit an entire section in this chapter, settion 8.8. Other names associated with the use of conformal mapping in applications are those of the German, Hermann von Helmholtz, who used it in the 1860s to describe fluid flow as well as the Englishman, Lord Rayleigh (John William Stmtt), who continued work on this field a generation later. ~t present, all of the significant problems solvable with conformal mapping are probably done. Now and during the past generation, problems that once would have been attempted in an idealized or simplified form with conformal mapping have come to be solved more realistically with commercially available numerical software packages for the computer. Modem computer solutions do not have the disadvantage attached to conformal mapping solutions: the problem must be two dimensional. However, conformal mapping does provide solutions to a set of canonical problems whose solution can be used as an elegant check on "brute force" numerical methods.$ The essence of the utility of conformal mapping in solving physical problems derives entirely from the following Statement.
THEOREM 5 Let the analytic function w = f ( z ) map the domain D from the z-plane onto the domain Dl of the w-plane. Suppose & ( u , v ) is harmonic in Dl, that is, in Dl

so that u = x2 - y2 a n d u = 2xy. Now 4 ( x , y) = ex -y cos(2xy) is readily found to satisfy Eq. (8.5-3), as the reader should verify. We can easily prove Theorem 5 when the domain Dl is simply connected. A more difficult proof, which dispenses with this requirement, is given in many texts.7 We rely here on Theorem 7, Chapter 2, which guarantees that, with ( u , v ) satisfying Eq. (8.5-1) in D l , there exists an analytic function in D l ,

( u , v),


where $1 ( u , v ) is the harmonic conjugate of 41 ( u , v). Since w = f ( z ) is an analytic function in D, we have that @I ( f ( 2 ) )= @ ( z )is an analytic function of an analytic function in D. Thus (see Theorem 5, Chapter 2) @ ( z )is analytic in D. Now
@I (w)

2U = f(z) . The boundaries of the domains are C and C1; (xo,yo) is an arbitrary point on c with image (uo,vo) on CI. The harmonic function 41 V) assumes the same (u, value k at (~10, as does d(x, Y) at (XO, VO), YO). of course the point (xo,yo) need not be confined to the boundary of D. Let be an interior point of D and let (uo,vo) be its corresponding image point, (xo wh;& is interior to Dl.Then the values assumed by 4(x,y) and 4 (u,u) at (xo, yo) and (uO,uO),respectively, will be identical. Similarly, the harmonic conjugates of

4(X,y) and 4 (LL, v).that is $(x, y) and $ 1 (u,v),which are harmonic in the domains D and Dl, respectively, also assume identical values at (xo,yo) and (uo,vo). We should note that it can be difficult to find an analytic transformation that will map a given domain onto one of some spe~ified simpler shape. We can refer to dictionaries of conformal mappings as an aid. ' Often experience or trial and error help. The Rielnann mapping theorenlt guarantees the existence of an analytic transformation that will map a simply connected domain with at least two boundary points onto the unit disc ll < 1. (Note that the theorem does not apply to mapping w the whole z-plane because of the issue of boundary points.) If the boundary of the given domain in the z-plane is mapped into 1 ull = 1, which is the case in all practical problems, then the Poisson integral formula for the circle (see section 4.7) can then be used to solve the transformed Dirichlet problem. The Riemann mapping theorem does not tell us how to obtain the required mapping, only that it exists. EXAMPLE 1 Two cylinders are maintained at temperatures of 0" and 100°, as shown in Fig. 8.5-2(a). An infinitesimal gap separates the cylinders at the origin. Find 4(x, y), the temperature in the domain between the cylinders.
Sobtion. The shape of the given domain is complicated. However, because the bilinear transformation will map circles into straight lines, we can transform this domain into the more tractable infinite strip shown in Fig. 8.5-2(b). We follow the method of the previous section and find that the bilinear transformation that maps a, b, and c from Fig. 8.5-2(a) into a' = 1, b' = 0, c' = co is 1-z

Under the transformation, the cylindrical boundary at 100" is transformed into the line u = 1, whereas the cylinder at 0" becomes the line u = 0. The strip 0 < u < 1 is the image of the region between the two circles in Fig. 8.5-2(a) Our problem now is the simpler one of finding 41(uj v). wluch is harmonic in the strip. We must also fulfill the boundary conditions 41 v, h ( 1 , v) = 100. cm The problem is now easy enough so that we might guess the result, Or study the sinular Example I in section 2.6.
