Elliptic Equations with Two Space Variables
=0 2g The Laplace equation is often encountered in heat and mass transfer theory, ﬂuid mechanics, elasticity, electrostatics, and other areas of mechanics and physics. For example, in heat and mass transfer theory, this equation describes steady-state temperature distribution in the absence of heat sources and sinks in the domain under study. A regular solution of the Laplace equation is called a harmonic function. The ﬁrst boundary value problem for the Laplace equation is often referred to as the Dirichlet problem, and the second boundary value problem as the Neumann problem. Extremum principle: Given a domain h , a harmonic function i in h that is not identically constant in h cannot attain its maximum or minimum value at any interior point of h . 7.1. Laplace Equation

7.1.1-2. Speciﬁc features of stating boundary value problems for the Laplace equation. 1 x . For outer boundary value problems on the plane, it is (usually) required to set the additional condition that the solution of the Laplace equation must be bounded at inﬁnity. 2 x .
