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 floppy disk for IBM-compatible computers that contains the CONFORM program.
