Effect of conductivity interfaces

By utilizing an integral equation formulation of Laplace’s equation it is shown that knowledge of the geometry of the conductivity interface, the values of conductivity, and the potentials and gradients on the conductivity interface are sufficient information to determine the infinite media potentials and infinite media potential gradients. The integral equations may be approximated by finite sums and the results can be implemented practically by using a medium size digital computer.
