2. 31: Potential Theory

Extractions: POINTERS: Texts Software Web links Selected topics here Potential theory may be viewed as the mathematical treatment of the potential-energy functions used in physics to study gravitation and electromagnetism. If some electrically charged particles are distributed in space, then a function U is defined on all of space (except right where the particles are) which measures the potential energy at each point. This function is harmonic , that is, it satisfies the Laplace equation d^2 U / dx^2 + d^2 U / dy^2 + d^2 U / dz^2 = 0, a condition which, for example, forces the value of U at a point to be the average of its values on a ball centered at that point. Classical problems include the determination of harmonic functions taking prescribed values at a point, on a sphere, and so on (the Dirichlet problem) that is, determining the force field which results from a particular arrangement of force sources. Harmonic functions in the plane include the real and complex parts of analytic functions, so Potential Theory overlaps Complex Analysis. (Actually potential theory in the plane is rather different from in higher dimensions, since the fundamental solution of the Laplace equation, corresponding to a single point charge, is 1/r^(n-2) in n-dimensional space, but log(r) in the plane. Nonetheless, the results in all dimensions often have cognates in complex analysis.)

http://pangea.stanford.edu/~blakely/potential.html

Extractions: Paperback: 441 pages, list \$34.95, ISBN 0-521-57547-8 This book bridges the gap between the classic texts on potential theory and modern books on applied geophysics. It begins with Newton's second law of motion and concludes with topics on state-of-the-art interpretations of gravity and magnetic data. It was published as part of the Stanford-Cambridge Program The introductory chapters discuss potential theory, with emphasis on those aspects important to earth scientists, such as Laplace's equation, Newtonian potential, magnetostatic and electrostatic fields, conduction of heat, and spherical harmonic analysis. Difficult concepts are illustrated with easily visualized examples from steady-state heat flow. Later chapters apply these theoretical concepts specifically to the interpretation of gravity and magnetic anomalies, with emphasis on anomalies caused by crustal and lithospheric sources. Many of these examples are drawn from the modern geophysical literature. Topics include regional and global fields, forward modeling, inverse methods, depth-to-source estimation, ideal bodies, analytical continuation, and spectral analysis. The book contains over 100 black-and-white figures , problem sets at the end of each chapter, and exercises dispersed throughout the text. It also includes an appendix of

Extractions: Summer Research Semester on Complex Potential Theory and its Applications Feza Gursey Institute, Istanbul Turkey application form Feza Gursey Institute shall host a research-teaching semester (July 5 - Aug. 6 and Aug. 16 - 21, 1999) on Complex Potential Theory (CPT) and its applications. There will be a workshop in Edirne Aug. 9 - 16, 1999 emphasizing the connection between functional analysis and complex analysis. The principal organizers of this mini-semester are A. Aytuna (METU), T.Terzioglu (Sabanci University), and V. Zahariuta (Feza Gursey Institute). CPT is a relevant potential theory for the multidimensional complex analysis and deals with plurisubharmonic functions and maximal plurisubharmonic functions; it is strongly connected with the study of the complex Monge-Ampere equation. CPT is an active area of research in Mathematics with applications in Approximation and Interpolation Theory, Partial Differential Equations, Complex Dynamical Systems, Differential Geometry, Number Theory and so on. Our aim, during the semester, is to impart the main ideas of CPT to advanced graduate students and other interested mathematicians through a series of lectures by leading researchers in the field as well as to proceed scientific discussions of the most advanced results and some actual problems in CPT. The following specialists have been contacted and accepted to provide 10-15 hour courses of lectures each:

Extractions: Ph. D., Purdue University, 1956 Mathematical Interests My interests lie in three interrelated topics: heat equations associated with second-order elliptic operators, Markov or diffusion processes, and potential theory. In the early 1950s, W. Feller characterized one-dimensional diffusions by representing their infinitesimal generators intrinsically and determined all possible boundary conditions which determine the domain of the generator. In 1959, Ventcel characterized the infinitesimal generators of general diffusion processes on bounded domains in higher dimensions as a second-order elliptic operator subject to boundary conditions involving diffusion, absorption, reflection, and viscosity at the boundary. The problem of showing that a second-order elliptic operator subject to such boundary conditions generates a Markov or diffusion process is in its infancy. The best results obtained so far involve a nondegenerate second-order elliptic operator subject to oblique derivative boundary conditions.

12. Studies In Potential Theory
Studies in potential theory. MA Monterie. The thesis consists of three parts in which two problems of potential theory are studied.
http://www.geocities.com/marcelmonterie/other/thesis.htm

Extractions: For planar continua, upper and lower bounds are given for the growth of the associated Fekete polynomials and potentials. For continua K of capacity 1 whose outer boundary is an analytic Jordan curve, the family of Fekete polynomials is bounded on K . The difference between the Fekete potential and the equilibrium distribution is estimated with order log N/N. The work is based on fundamental results of Pommerenke and on potential theory, including the exterior Green function with pole at infinity. For convex surfaces, and certain smooth surfaces, a similar technique is used and the order 1/x is obtained. In the last part, a Nevanlinna-like criterion for positive capacity of Cantor-type sets K is proved. Using this criterion, examples are constructed of such K with capacity zero such that the projections of the square of K in all but two directions have positive capacity.
