Beginning with a brief survey of some basic mathematical concepts, this graduate-level text proceeds to discussions of a selection of mapping functions, numerical methods and mathematical models, nonplanar fields and nonuniform media, static fields in electricity and magnetism, and transmission lines and waveguides. Other topics include vibrating membranes and acoustics, transverse vibrations and buckling of plates, stresses and strains in an elastic medium, steady state heat conduction in doubly connected regions, transient heat transfer in isotropic and anisotropic media, and fluid flow. Revision of 1991 ed. 247 figures. 38 tables. Appendices.
