In this work, we use conformal mapping to transform harmonic Dirichlet problems of Laplace's equation which are defined in simply-connected domains into harmonic Dirichlet problems that are defined in the unit disk. We then solve the resulting harmonic Dirichlet problems efficiently using the method of fundamental solutions (MFS) in conjunction with fast fourier transforms (FFTs). This technique is extended to harmonic Dirichlet problems in doubly-connected domains which are now mapped onto annular domains. The solution of the resulting harmonic Dirichlet problems can be carried out equally efficiently using the MFS with FFTs. Several numerical examples are presented. © 2008 Springer-Verlag.

The singular function boundary integral method for 3-D Laplacian problems with a boundary straight edge singularity Christodoulou, Evgenia; Elliotis, Miltiades C.; Xenophontos, Christos A.; Georgiou, Georgios C. (2012)Three-dimensional Laplace problems with a boundary straight-edge singularity caused by two intersecting flat planes are considered. The solution in the neighbourhood of the straight edge can be expressed as an asymptotic ...
The numerical solution of three-dimensional Signorini problems with the method of fundamental solutions Poullikkas, A.; Karageorghis, Andreas; Georgiou, Georgios C. (2001)The method of fundamental solutions (MFS) is formulated for three-dimensional Signorini boundary-value problems. The method is tested on a three-dimensional electropainting problem related to the coating of vehicle roofs. ...
Karageorghis, Andreas; Fairweather, G. (1999)In this paper, we investigate the application of the Method of Fundamental Solutions (MFS) to two classes of axisymmetric potential problems. In the first, the boundary conditions as well as the domain of the problem, are ...
