Abstract

Cohl & Tohline (1999) have shown how the integration/summation expression for the Green's function in cylindrical coordinates can be written as an azimuthal Fourier series expansion whose coefficients are given in terms of toroidal functions. In this paper, we start to show how this compact representation can be extended to all rotationally invariant coordinate systems which are known to admit separable solutions for Laplace's equation.
