The embedding method for linear partial differential equations in unbounded and multiply connected domains. (English) Zbl 1106.65101

Summary: The recently suggested embedding method to solve linear boundary value problems [cf. P. N. Shankar, Proc. R. Soc. London A 461, No. 2059, 2121–2133 (2005; Zbl 1153.65369)] is here extended to cover situations where the domain of interest is unbounded or multiply connected. The extension involve the use of complete sets of exterior and interior eigenfunctions on canonical domains. Applications to typical boundary value problems for Laplace’s equation, the Oseen equations and the biharmonic equation are given as examples.
