Description

In this book you find the basic mathematics that is needed by engineers and university students . The author will help you to understand the meaning and function of mathematical concepts. The best way to learn it, is by doing it, the exercises in this book will help you do just that.

Polynomials are the first class of functions that the student meets. Therefore, one may think that they are easy to handle. They are not in general! Topics as e.g. finding roots in a polynomial and the winding number are illustrated. Some of the topics only require an elementary knowledge of Calculus in one variable. Others rely heavily on Complex Functions Theory.
