Handbook of Conformal Mapping with Computer-Aided Visualization

Valentin I. Ivanov and Michael K. Trubetskov

1994

384 pages

This book is a guide on conformal mappings, their applications in physics
and technology, and their computer-aided visualization. Conformal mapping
(CM) is a classical part of complex analysis having numerous applications to
mathematical physics. This modern handbook on CM includes recent results
such as the classification of all triangles and quadrangles that can be
mapped by elementary functions, mappings realized by elliptic integrals and
Jacobian elliptic functions, and mappings of doubly connected domains. This
handbook considers a wide array of applications, among which are the
construction of a Green function for various boundary-value problems,
streaming around airfoils, the impact of a cylinder on the surface of a
liquid, and filtration under a dam.
 
With more than 160 domains included in the catalog of mapping, Handbook of
Conformal Mapping with Computer-Aided Visualization is more complete and
useful than any previous volume covering this important topic. The authors
have developed an interactive ready-to-use software program for constructing
conformal mappings and visualizing plane harmonic vector fields. The book
includes a 5.25" floppy disk for IBM-compatible computers that contains the
CONFORM program.
 
This book is addressed to students in applied mathematics studying complex
analysis and its applications, and to specialists using CM for calculations
of potential vector fields in science and engineering disciplines; also
researchers, engineers, undergraduates, and postgraduates involved with
aerodynamics, hydromechanics, hydraulics, elasticity, heat engineering,
radioelectronics, and electron optics.
