Extractions: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search In mathematics and mathematical physics potential theory may be defined as the study of harmonic functions The term "potential theory" arises from the fact that, in 19th-century physics , the fundamental forces of nature were believed to be derived from potentials which satisfied Laplace's equation . Hence, potential theory was the study of functions which could serve as potentials. Nowadays, we know that nature is more complicated: the equations which describe forces are systems of non-linear partial differential equations such as the Einstein equations and the Yang-Mills equations , and the Laplace equation is only valid as a limiting case. Nevertheless, the term "potential theory" has remained as a convenient term for describing the study of functions which satisfy the Laplace equation. It is also still the case that the Laplace equation is used in applications in several areas of physics like heat conduction and electrostatics.

Extractions: A short article designed to provide an introduction to potential theory, 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... 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.

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.)

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
