Die Theorie der komplexen Funktionen wird im Hinblick auf die den Ingenieur interessierenden Anwendungen entwickelt. Dementsprechend wird das intuitive Erfassen von Tatsachen und Begriffen in den Vordergrund gestellt und Beweisf?hrungen werden nur gebracht, soweit sie zum anschaulichen Verst?ndnis des Stoffes beitragen. Dieser erste Band enth?lt den Begriff der komplexen Funktionen, der analytischen Funktionen, der konformen Abbildung. Die wichtigsten komplexen Funktionen werden auf ihr Abbildungsverhalten hin ausf?hrlich untersucht. Es wird eine Methode entwickelt, die mit Hilfe konformer Abbildung ebene Potentialprobleme l?st.
