Complex Potentials (Based on Kreyszig) The electrostatic force of attraction between charged objects is the gradient of an electrostatic potential function ∞ that satisfied Laplace's equation. Examples (A) Find the potential ∞ between two parallel plates extending to infinity, which are kept at potentials ∞1 and ∞2 respectively. Solution: This is just Dirichlet's problem. If the parallel plates are vertical, we can take the vertical axis to be the y-axis with the lower plate x = 0, and take x ∞ = ∞1 + (∞2 - ∞1) h where h is the distance between the plates. A complex potential function corresponding o the real potential function ∞(z) is an analytic function F(z) = ∞(z) + i§(z). Notice that ∞ and § are conjugate harmonic functions. In this exa...
