Abstract

The basic problem in this study is the mathematics of certain physical applications of analytic transformations. The primary purpose of this paper is to obtain an idea of, or to become acquainted with, some of the physical applications of various analytic transformations of the form w = f(z). The study is limited to physical applications of the analytic functions: [functions listed]. Some applications of the Schwarz-Christoffel transformation are also considered. The use of analytic transformations to solve certain boundary value problems in steady temperatures, electrostatics, and fluid flow is shown. It is found that as regions and boundary values become complicated, so does the analytic functions used for the analytic transformation.
