Functions of a complex variable; theory and technique
by
George F Carrier(
Book
)
46 editions published between 1960 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Functions of a complex variable are used to solve applications in various branches of mathematics, science, and engineering. Functions of a Complex Variable: Theory and Technique is a book in a special category of influential classics because it is based on the authors' extensive experience in modeling complicated situations and providing analytic solutions. The book makes available to readers a comprehensive range of these analytical techniques based upon complex variable theory. Advanced topics covered include asymptotics, transforms, the WienerHopf method, and dual and singular integral equations. The authors provide many exercises, incorporating them into the body of the text. Audience: intended for applied mathematicians, scientists, engineers, and senior or graduatelevel students who have advanced knowledge in calculus and are interested in such subjects as complex variable theory, function theory, mathematical methods, advanced engineering mathematics, and mathematical physics

George F Carrier(
Book
)
30 editions published between 1958 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Offers an alternative to the "rote" approach of presenting standard categories of differential equations accompanied by routine problem sets. The exercises presented amplify and provide perspective for the material, often giving readers opportunity for ingenuity. Little or no previous acquaintance with the subject is required to learn usage of techniques for constructing solutions of differential equations in this reprint volume

Towards windaided flame spread along a horizontal charring slab : the steady flow problem
by
George F Carrier(
Book
)
2 editions published between 1981 and 1983 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The spread of fire across the ceiling of a large room (or long corridor) in a structure is modeled as windaided flame spread along a horizontal charforming thick slab, in the presence of significant convective, diffusive, and radiative transport. The goal is to predict the rate of streamwise advance of the site on the solidgas interface at which the pristine solid undergoes endothermic degradation to a combination of (1) a porous carbonaceous heatretaining matrix, and (2) a mixture of (partially combustible) vapors that move through the matrix to the outer gas. This rate of advance of the thermaldegradation site is sought as a function of normally available data concerning the thermodynamic and physical properties of the solid and the thermodynamic and dynamic state of the hot vitiated bulk gas that flows over the slab. A nonlinear, unsteady, twospatialdimension treatment in the ShvabZeldovich approximation entails boundary layer simplification in the manner of Prandtl convectivetransport simplification in the manner of Oseen, and thinflame simplification in the manner of Burke and Schumann. Whereas the formulation given here is general and is to be solved in subsequent work for a partially involved slab, the solution here is limited to the steadystate problem

Windaided firespread across arrays of discrete fuel elements
by
George F Carrier(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The rate of windaided firespread (v sub f) across an array of very smalldiameter, discrete fuel elements is sought, as a step toward predicting the advance in time of a firefront though either strewn debris in a heavily blastdamaged scenario or through brushandgrasstype wildlands. Here, the quasisteady rate (if one exists) is sought for conditions under which there is both (1) a wind whose mean speed U is constant and whose direction is constant, and (2) a horizontal bed with a macroscopically uniform fuel distribution. M is the mass of fuel (per unit planform area of the bed) consumed with firefront passage; here the fuel elements are thin, so the fuel consumed is identical with the fuel loading initially present, if fire propagates at all. Laboratoryscale experiments in a specially dedicated firetunnel, with supplementary approximate analysis, are reported. Extensive testing suggests that (v sub f) varies with sq root of U/m over a wide range of the parameters U and m. Only if the thinfuel loading m approaches the rather large value of very roughly 2 g/sq cm is radiative transfer likely to play a role comparable to that of convection/ diffusion for preheating. (MM)
