Superposition on continuty condition

  1. Jan 15, 2012 #1
    I'm confused about the superposition when the B.C(boundary condition) is continuity condition between two domain.

    The laplace equation(or possion) expressed as (in circular annulus),

    2A/∂r2 + 1/r ∂A/∂r + 1/r22A/∂θ2 = f(r,θ)

    Assume that there are two domains where the boundary of each domain is :

    1. (a<r<b, 0<θ<2pi)
    with B.C : A1(b,θ)=A2(b,θ) , and etc.. on elsewhere(r=a, or θ=somewhere)

    2. (b<r<c, 0<θ<2pi)
    with B.C : ∂A1/∂θ=∂A2/∂θ (at r=b)
    , and etc.. on elsewhere(r=c, or θ=somewhere)

    Is that right to solve the equation by adopting super position theory?
    for example, In domatin 1,

    A1(r,θ)=A11(r,θ)+A12(r,θ) (1)

    A11(r,θ) satisfy A11(b,θ)=0 (2)

    A12(r,θ) satisfy A12(b,θ)=A2(b,θ) (3)

    Can i make the continuty condition 0 as a general non homogeneous B.C condition to solve the equation by
    super position? thx in advance
