Complex form of poisson equation

  1. Jul 25, 2012 #1

    I am trying to solve the complex form of poisson equation ∇[ε(x)∇V(x)] = -1/εo ρ(x)
    with complex permittivity.

    If I introduce complex permittivity ε = εr - j σ/(εow), then I must introduce a complex potential ,V = Vr + jVi.
    That means the charge density, ρ, must also take a complex form, but I'm not sure what to make of that.

    For my boundary conditions, I have the real part of the voltage measured from the oscilloscope, and the real charge density I compute through the conservation equations.

    Any help on this topic? I can't find much on this on internet.
