Part of the Springer Monographs in Mathematics book series (SMM)


For a given boundary value problem in a domain Ω ⊂ ℝ2, one can look for the solution in the form of so called single or double layer potential,
$$\left( {Vu} \right)\left( x \right) = \int_\Gamma {E\left( {x - y} \right)} u\left( y \right)d{\Gamma _y} $$
$$\left( {Vu} \right)\left( x \right) = \int\limits_\Gamma {\tfrac{{\partial E\left( {X - Y} \right)}}{{\partial {n_y}}}} u\left( y \right)d{\Gamma _y} $$
