Some notes[edit]

I made a slight addition to clarify that the Laplcae equation is still used in science. It is perhaps not phrased in the most artful manner but I thought it important to dispel any impression that advances in physics has made the Laplace equation obsolete., an impression that you might get from reading the first paragraph.

I have suggested a merger with [harmonic function] in that discussion page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.229.231.115 (talk) 19:38, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

Probabilistic potential theory[edit]

Can someone add information about probabilistic potential theory to this article? Kaldari (talk) 03:22, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Hello, I was passing through and added a short paragraph to the introduction, and a reference (Snell) to the bibliography. This is quite terrible, and I'm not a regular wikipedian, but maybe it is a starting point. Unfortunately, I am not at all knowledgeable about potential theory outside of the discrete case. Would it be worthwhile to add some discussion of the state-of-the-art as of about 10 years ago? Also, as a probabilist, it seems like there should be some discussion of Green's functions - does this seem reasonable? Do analysts on this page know if they are as important there as they seem from the probability side? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.48.237.250 (talk) 04:03, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
