Layer potentials: an abstract approach

Talk by Prof. Dr. Ariel Barton

Date: 20.10.21  Time: 16.15 - 17.15  Room: Online ZHACM

In this talk I will review the history and some applications of a classical tool, layer potentials, in the theory of harmonic analysis and linear boundary value problems. I will then present a new approach to layer potentials based on abstract functional analysis and show how many classical results, such as jump relations and the Green's formula, may easily be derived.
