They begin by describing complex numbers and their elementary properties, including power series, powers and logarithms and the geometric properties of simple functions, analytic functions such as differentiation and integration in the complex frame, Cauchy's integral formula, Taylor and Laurent series and analytic continuation, contour integration, conformal mapping, including the Joukowsky and Schwarz-Christoffel transformations, special functions such as the gamma function and the Lefendre and Bessel functions, asymptotic methods such as that of Laplace, transform methods such as Fourier transforms, and special techniques such as the Weiner-Hopf methods, the kernel decomposition and using approximate kernels.
