Analysis für Physiker und Ingenieure: Funktionentheorie, by Prof. Dr. Klaus Jänich (auth.)

By Prof. Dr. Klaus Jänich (auth.)

Aus den Besprechungen: "Dies ist ein Lehrbuch, wie ich es mir als pupil gew?nscht h?tte: Nahezu jeder Begriff wird vor seiner Einf?hrung ausf?hrlich motiviert, guy findet eine Unmenge (461 St?ck!) von hervorragenden Figuren, jedes Kapitel enth?lt sowohl eine Einleitung, in der skizziert wird, 'wohin der Hase laufen soll', als auch eine R?ckschau mit den wichtigsten Ergebnissen. guy findet reichlich ?bungen (mit L?sungshinweisen) sowie a number of selection exams (mit L?sungen) am Ende jeden Kapitels. Der Stil ist locker und unterhaltsam und unterscheidet sich wohltuend von den ?blichen trockenen Mathematik-Lehrb?chern. Ein hervorragendes Lehrbuch, dessen Lekt?re nicht nur f?r Physiker und Ingenieure n?tzlich, sondern auch f?r Mathematikstudenten eine willkommene Erg?nzung zum 't?glichen Brot' sein d?rfte". #Zentralblatt f?r Mathematik 1#
