Geophysical Problems

  • Brian Straughan
Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 91)


In this chapter we describe two geophysical problems where energy theory has proved very useful. Not only has an application of energy theory yielded useful information, but also, the mathematics of the problem has necessitated the introduction of novel generalized energies.
