Green function in the plane

  1. Feb 7, 2013 #1
    Hi everybody.

    Does someone know the solution of the following differential equation in two dimensions:

    1) [itex] \Big(\frac{\partial^2}{\partial\,r^2}+\frac{ \partial^2}{\partial\,z^2}\Big)G(r,z)=\delta(r-ro)\delta(z-zo)[/itex]

    and

    2) [itex]\Big(\frac{\partial^2}{\partial\,r^2}+\frac{1}{r}\frac{\partial}{\partial r}+\frac{\partial^2}{\partial\,z^2}\Big)G(r,z)= \delta(r-ro)\delta(z-zo) [/itex]

    or alternative at 2)

    2 bis) [itex] \Big(\frac{\partial^2}{\partial\,r^2}-\frac{3}{4\,r}+\frac{\partial^2}{\partial\,z^2} \Big)G(r,z)=\delta(r-ro)\delta(z-zo) [/itex]

    Thanks for the help!
