Contents 1. Preliminaries -- 2. Potential theory in the Euclidean space R[superscript 3] -- 3. Potential theory on the unit sphere [omega]
Summary "This work explores and presents the principles of 'surface potential theory for the sphere, ' in addition to those in the Euclidean space R3, and breaks new mathematical ground in dealing generically with potential theoretic aspects of gravitation and geomagnetism. The work covers a two-semester graduate course in the teaching cycle of geomathematics, but it can as well be used as a reference for researchers and aims at presenting the "state of the art" in three-dimensional Euclidean as well as two-dimensional spherical potential theory for applications in the geosciences."
Notes "A Chapman & Hall Book."
