A stochastic model for the electrical conduction in non homogeneous layers

  • G. De Mey
Part II: Research Reports
Part of the Lecture Notes in Control and Information Sciences book series (LNCIS, volume 16)


The equation for the potential in a non homogeneous conducting layer is derived. If the conductivity is represented by a stochastic process, the potential ф becomes a stochastic quantity. For a simple rectangular geometry an analytic treatment will be presented to calculate the expectation value and mean square deviation of the potential. At last an integral equation technique will be put forward.
