Green's functions for multiply connected domains via conformal mapping

Embree, Mark and Trefethen, Lloyd N. (1998) Green's functions for multiply connected domains via conformal mapping. Technical Report. SIAM. (Submitted)



A method is described for the computation of the Green's function in the complex plane corresponding to a set of K symmetrically placed polygons along the real axis. An important special case is a set of K real intervals. The method is based on a Schwarz-Christoffel conformal map of the part of the upper half-plane exterior to the problem domain onto a semi-infinite strip whose end contains K-1 slits. From the Green's function one can obtain a great deal of information about polynomial approximations, with applications in digital filters and matrix iteration. By making the end of the strip jagged, the method can be generalised to weighted Green's functions and weighted approximations.
