Homework Help: Conformal Mapping question

  1. Oct 12, 2009 #1
    Hi, my question is what mapping to use for the problem in the picture attached.

    I need to be able to find the potential distribution etc by mapping from the x-y plane (as pictured) to a straight lines plane capacitor, which would be pretty straightforward, but I can't find this map in any mapping "dictionaries"!

    I guess that I could use the symmetry along the horizontal to help place my axes but obviously I am unsure on the next step to take.
