Methods Based on Cauchy Integrals

Part of the Texts in Applied Mathematics book series (TAM, volume 41)


The major difficulty in using the Wiener-Hopf technique is the problem of constructing a suitable factorization. We consider in this chapter methods based on contour integration which leads, by natural extensions, to the use of Cauchy integrals in the solution of mixed boundary-value problems.
