Mathematical Development of the Complex Variable Boundary Element Method

  • Theodore V. HromadkaII
  • Chintu Lai


In this chapter, the underlying mathematics for the CVBEM will be systematically and rigorously developed. For the subsequent formulation of a workable computer algorithm, two basic approximations are made to the familiar classic Cauchy integral formula; the discretization of the problem boundary and the representation of the exact function by a trial function for boundary integration.
