After publishing six editions with Jones and Bartlett, the authors have made this textbook available with an open license. Written to support a traditional complex analysis course for math, physics, and engineering students, the first half of the book lays the foundation for the study of analytic and harmonic functions and contour integration. The second half presents a choice of topics such as residue calculus, conformal mappings, Fourier and Laplace transforms, and a range of applications.

The complex numbers are introduced with a motivating historical treatment. Throughout the text, the writing is clear, and the exposition includes both ample motivation and careful explanations. A later chapter includes a range of applications of harmonic functions to physical situations such as steady-state temperatures, electrostatics, and two-dimensional fluid flow.
