About this book

Introduces the principles of gravitational, magnetic, electrostatic, direct current electrical and electromagnetic fields, with detailed solutions of Laplace and electromagnetic wave equations by the method of separation of variables. Discussion includes behaviours of the scalar and vector potential and the nature of the solutions of these boundary value problems, along with the use of complex variables and conformal transformation, Green's theorem, Green's formula and Green's functions. Finite element and finite difference methods for two dimensional potential problems are discussed in considerable detail. The analytical continuation of the potential field and inverse theory, used for the interpretation of potential field data, is also demonstrated.

Media reviews

From the reviews: "With 17 chapters and more than 600 pages, this is a comprehensive M.Sc.-level textbook on potential theory and electromagnetic theory with particular emphasis on geophysical applications." (Sven Ivansson, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2008 k) "This book has been used as textbook teaching post-graduate students in India. The book introduces theory and computational methods applied to electrical and electromagnetic fields in geophysics. ! The mathematics algorithms are discussed and they are related to boundary value problems, conformal transformation, Green's theorem, Green's functions, finite element and finite difference methods for two-dimensional potential problems." (Chengshu Wang, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1152, 2009)
