- ABOUT: POINTERS: 31: Potential theory Introduction Potential theory may be viewed as the mathematical treatment of the potential-energy functions used in physics to study gravitation and electromagnetism. If some electrically charged particles are distributed in space, then a function U is defined on all of space (except right where the particles are) which measures the potential energy at each ...www.math.niu.edu/~rusin/known-math/index/31-XX.html
