On the Representation of Differential Forms by Potentials in Dimension 3

  • A. Bossavit
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computational Science and Engineering book series (LNCSE, volume 18)


The notions of scalar and vector potential of a layer of charge or currents are presented in differential geometric language, using a notation which aims at clarifying the connection with standard vector algebraic formalism.
