Course Objective It is aimed to teach how to obtain mathematical correlation which required for geophysical model studies using potential fields.
Course Content Potential theory is investigate mathematical definition and features of vectoral and /or scalar fields generally. Furthermore, potential theory investigate physical features of this fields. Main investigation subjects ( gravity, electricity, electromagnetic, magnetic, navigation, heat, pressure and similar fields ) of geophysics can investigate using potantial theory.
