Readers can start by reviewing the fundamental concepts of algebra, trigonometry, analytic geometry and calculus or refer to these as needed. This book then guides students and practitioners to an understanding of ordinary differential equations, Laplace transforms, Fourier series, complex variables, conforming mapping and more. The hundreds of problems with detailed solutions let readers master the applications of these theorems and concepts. Hundreds of additional problems with answers reinforce learning and help sharpen skills.
