With origins well rooted in electrostatics, charge distributions on the surface of a conductor become mathematical entities that can be transferred to domains where they have no physical meaning, while they are still useful for computation. I will describe the work of my team in trying to reveal mathematical properties of discrete layer potentials and their applications to several problems in acoustics, elastodynamics, and electromagnetism. 5/5/2017 7:30:00 PM5/5/2017 9:30:00 PMFalse
