In lectures we derived a general expression for the potential distribution across the xy half plane (y>0) in terms of a known potential distribution along the boundary defined by the x-axis where the potential,phi, is described by Laplace's equation in 2-D. In the case where the potential along the boundary is: 0 for x greater than equal to a, 0 for x less then equal to -a, phi0 for -a<x<a, deduce an expression for the potential distribution throughout the half plane.

I think what is getting me are the 3 boundary conditions - I'm not sure exactly what i should be doing with them to find values for the coefficients.

i'm sorry that it's not very clear but if you have any ideas they would be greatly appreciated

thanks
