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 twosemester 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 threedimensional Euclidean as well as twodimensional spherical potential theory for applications in the geosciences."
