    Toroidal coordinates are discussed in Appendix B. The metric tensor, curl, grad, div, and the Laplacian for a large number of orthogonal coordinate systems may be found in Parry Moon and Domina E. Spencer. (1961) Field Theory Handbook, Springer-Verlag, Berlin. The separation of the Laplace equation and the Helmholtz equation is effected for each of the coordinate systems in this small volume, and the general solutions are given.Google Scholar
